The Phoenix Police Department recently partnered with the City of Mesa Police Department, Tempe Police Department, Chandler Police Department, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Attorney General’s Office for Operation Broken Hearts. Operation Broken Hearts was an undercover operation targeting sexual predators engaged in child sex crimes and human trafficking.
Throughout the operational period, officers and undercover detectives placed ads on websites and apps which are commonly sought out by suspects seeking illegal sex acts with children. These suspects solicited and/or brokered deals for various sex acts and were subsequently arrested.
The combined efforts of the agencies involved, are part of a nationwide effort to eliminate human and sex trafficking. If you have information about someone being trafficked, contact your local police department or the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 888-373-7888 or humantraffickinghotline.org
