Registration includes Lunch  Register HERE

Licensed Texas Investigators will receive 6 hours of Continuing Education


Private Investigators from Texas, and around the United States, will be joining with Texas organizations, agencies and the community working against Child Sex Trafficking, to discuss viable solutions to this growing epidemic.   Traditional assumptions around sex trafficking include the idea that trafficked girls were all brought to the U.S. from abroad, or were prostitutes who entered it willingly.  Some assumptions go as far as labeling sex trafficking as a non-issue in the United States, that happens in developing, or corrupt countries. Misconceptions like this, in addition to a constantly evolving trade, have helped keep child sex trafficking prevalent.

Private investigators have a special skill set that assists in the rescue, and recovery, of children throughout the Country. NAMEC was formed in May 2017 to unite the PI community in the fight against Child Sex Trafficking.  Missing and Exploited Children, after rescue, are often left vulnerable to become prey again to sex predators. Without proper care, and post-rescue support, victims have little to use to rebuild their lives. The process of protecting victims extends to helping them after rescue, and making sure they aren’t re-victimized. That is the idea behind these collaborations.

The presentations will include San Antonio District Attorney Joe Gonzales, representatives of  NAMEC, Saved in America, Childproof America, Nevada Childseekers, OEW of America and several others to be announced.
