Last week, police services across Canada participated in a two-day blitz focusing on the growing concern that young women are being forced to participate in the sex trade.

Operation Northern Spotlight involved 26 police services on January 22 and 23, 2014 and was centered around hotels and motels on major thoroughfares in over 30 cities and towns across the country. Over 330 young women, some as young as 15 years of age, were interviewed. Police found some were being forced to perform sexual acts, multiple times a day, for paying male customers.

Although the Criminal Code section refers to this activity as “Human Trafficking,” the public may better understand this issue as “sex slavery.” Although many of the women appear to be making their own decisions to participate for financial gain, investigators found several teenagers and young women were being forced to perform through threats of violence, physical intimidation, drug dependency and other forms of coercion. Part or all of the proceeds from the sexual encounters were kept by their adult male controller or pimp.

Police Services will continue to monitor any incidents of “forced participation” in hopes of assisting any woman involved in the sex trade business against her will.

The 26 police services participating were:

Ontario
Barrie PS; Brockville PS; Cornwall PS; Durham Regional PS; Halton Regional PS; Kingston PS; London PS; Niagara Regional PS; Ontario Provincial Police; Ottawa PS; Peel Regional PS; RCMP; Greater Sudbury PS; Thunder Bay PS; Waterloo Regional PS; Windsor PS; York Regional PS.

Western Canada
Calgary PS Alta; Edmonton PS Alta; Regina PS Sask; Saskatoon PS Sask; Winnipeg PS Man.

Eastern Canada
Gatineau PS, Que; Halifax Regional PS, NS; Saint John’s RNC, NFLD; Saint John PS, NB.

If you have information about any young person being coerced into the sex trade, please contact Detective Mark Noonan of the Brockville Police Service or your local Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

MEDIA NOTE: This initiative was coordinated by Sergeant Ron Kapuscinski

We have just launched a new crime mapping tool that is publicly available at www.brockvillepolice.com.

This new website (CrimePlot.com) is owned and managed by the Midland Police Service and was developed by S/Constable Bill Gordon, the service's IT Manager. The concept is to allow citizens of Brockville to visualize criminal activity and police calls for service in and around the community. The site is built to be mobile-device friendly, so it should work on your smartphones and tablets as well as your desktop computers.

The mapping data is an extract from our master database and only contains incidents that meet public disclosure eligibility. We won't provide detailed locations for any specific incident and the co-ordinates have a margin of error induced to help anonymize the visualizations. This means that the incident you see on the map did not occur at the exact pinpoint of the icon.

Incident classifications that could lead to the identity of a victim have not been included on this map. You won't find incidents for sudden deaths (natural causes), suicides, suicide attempts, mental health issues, domestic violence, child abuse etc...
Since we only show a subset of our data you cannot expect that the number of mapped incidents (aka occurrences) that are visible are a true reflection of how many incidents are actually on file for the day(s) or time range you selected.

The tool is new, there might be the odd bug, but it is ready for public trials. Please try it out and let us know what you think. Visit often since we will be updating the data regularly and adding features that you might find useful.

We hope that you find this new tool both useful and insightful. You may be surprised to learn what is happening in your community. Sharing this with our community just makes sense.

Thank you to Bill Gordon, Chief Mike Osborne and the Midland Police Service for making this tool available.
