The College Park Police Department has joined Safe America in helping fight human trafficking around the Atlanta International Airport. Under its ‘HUMANS Care project, Safe America and College Park police officers met today – analyzing how to monitor 5,000 hotel rooms around Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Chief Ferman Williford hosted a meeting with City Manager Terrence Moore and Safe America CEO Len Pagano, focusing on how to use Safe America’s newly-donated ambulances to monitor hotels. Pagano thanked AMR executive Antoine Meadows for his support, noting that ‘thanks to AMR, we’ll end young girls being sexually abused.”
Clayton County Chairman Jeff Turner – who chairs Safe America – added his support, thanking College Park for its leadership. Mr. Turner has engaged other Metro Atlanta leaders – such as Cobb County Chairman Mike Boyce – in fighting human trafficking. Safe America is also working with non-profits such as youthSpark. And, has engaged the Atlanta Airport Chamber of Commerce plus business partners such as international firm, DNVGL, and its regional executive, Todd Begerow.
“We’re thankful for all of those who are supporting Safe America’s ‘HUMANS Care’ program – especially our local police,” noted Pagano. “While some people nationally have been criticizing public safety, we salute our local leaders – who show their passion in protecting youth. Truly, they are doing great work – and we salute them.”
Pagano noted that Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett counties – and their police departments – will also be invited to collaborate on HUMANS Care. He added that firms that want to be involved can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
