LIMTIACO, U.S. Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI), announced that U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands participated at the 2013 Foreign Labor Compliance Conference held in Guam on March 19-20, 2013. U.S. Attorney Limtiaco spoke on the topic, “An Overview of the Pacific Regional Response to Combat Human Trafficking – Collaboration in the Western Pacific.” The conference was sponsored by the Guam Department of Labor and over 200 people attended the two-day training.
At the Conference, U.S. Attorney Limtiaco discussed Department of Justice initiatives, including Project Safe Childhood (PSC), Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) and Diverse Community Outreach.
Launched in May 2006, PSC is a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys= Offices, the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section of the Department=s Criminal Division, and Internet Crimes Against Children task forces, PSC marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims. PSC’s goal is to educate parents about the potential dangers that their children face online, and warns potential online predators that exploiting a child online is a serious federal offense.
PSN is a nationwide commitment to aggressively prosecute defendants who engage in drug distribution, gang involvement and violent crime.
The purpose of the Diverse Community Outreach is to increase and improve communication and collaboration between the community and law enforcement. Faith-based community members and Consulate Offices are invited and participate in the initiative. Issues discussed at the Diverse Community Outreach meetings include human trafficking; hate crimes and civil rights; immigration; labor; cultural competency; national security; and crime prevention.
