San Diego County Has an Awesome New Tool to Combat Sex Trafficking

San Diego County has a new crime-fighting RV at its disposal.

The mobile command center, which will be used in anti-sex-trafficking operations, was unveiled at the San Diego County Administration Center in Kearny Mesa last week. It is 37 feet long and can hold a variety of equipment used to find and rescue sex trafficking victims, according to NBC News. It can also hold victims’ family members who sometimes accompany rescue teams.

“We were doing multiple recoveries at the same time so we needed one central point of communications and a central point to put all our electronic gear so we could accomplish what we need to accomplish,” Joseph Travers, founder of Saved in America, told NBC.

Saved in America will operate the command post. Since 2014, the organization has rescued more than 200 trafficking victims.
