We Fund The Police: JC Holt on O.U.R.'s Work in the United States
Special guest JC Holt, who heads up O.U.R.’s domestic projects, joins Tim today to talk about the incredible work being done to fight child crimes in the United States. Shockingly, the United States is in the top three destination countries for human trafficking, which means there is a lot of work to be done on the domestic front.
With a background in law enforcement, JC has changed the game in terms of what we’re able to achieve in the United States. He talks about his ability to interface with other police officers and how this has been extremely beneficial in taking a coordinated approach to operations. Once O.U.R. started working with a few law enforcement agencies and they saw how quickly things were getting done, the phone hasn't stopped ringing.
Tim and JC talk about being able to bypass the bureaucracy that exists within government departments, meaning that resources are distributed and perpetrators are arrested at an accelerated pace.
The resources required to fight this fight are expensive and with the ‘defund the police’ era, budget cuts make it even more difficult. This is why O.U.R. is proud to say that we fund the police. JC and Tim talk about some of the resources we have provided to help rescue children all across America, including mobile labs to action warrants and digital forensics on the scene, over 60 K9 dogs across the United States and digital extraction software to unlock devices that these amazing dogs uncover.
JC talks about the hard work and dedication that goes into training the K9 dogs and how they have contributed to the arrest of hundreds of perpetrators in the United States, and as a result of that, helped countless victims.
This work is never done and Operation Underground Railroad needs your help to rescue as many children as possible. To help us carry out more operations, please head to ourrescue.org/give-now and thanks for listening.
