On Thursday, June 20th and Friday, June 21st, members of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crime Task Force, Sweetwater Police Department, Vonore Police Department, and the Covenant Rescue Group conducted a child sex trafficking operation in Sweetwater, Tennessee. During the course of the operation, seven suspects were taken into custody for engaging in conversations regarding sexual acts with an operative agent that was posing as a juvenile under the age of eighteen. These conversations were heinous in nature, and most included money in exchange for sexual acts.
We would like to extend our appreciation to the Covenant Rescue Group for their assistance and training that their organization provided to ensure this operation was safe and successful.
About the Covenant Rescue Group:
Covenant Rescue Group (CRG) is a 501c3 organization and was founded in June 2019 by former US Navy SEAL Jared Hudson and his wife. They saw a lack of skills and funding to properly rescue victims and arrest criminals involved in Human Trafficking. Sharing a passion for children who fall victim to human trafficking globally, they decided to become active. They organized their passion, training, and expertise, to bring this wicked, organized enterprise to an end.
The heart of CRG is to bring good news of hope and freedom to the millions of victims of human trafficking around the world – to release the captives, bind up the brokenhearted, to bring swift, sure justice to their captors.
CRG provides funding for REAL-LIFE operations that lead to REAL rescues, arrests, and prosecution. We provide essential training and equipment for law enforcement. We create teams that are dedicated to the mission. We spread awareness, advocating through news, social media, and conferences to the growing global problem of human trafficking and how to end it.
