The Super Bowl is being played in your city. With it comes an influx of fans, the media, and support personnel for the National Football League (NFL) from across the nation and the world, which brings with it the potential for illicit crimes such as prostitution (human trafficking), narcotics, and gambling.
1) You are the state attorney for the jurisdiction where the Super Bowl will be hosted and played, and you are appointed to keep these crimes from becoming issues, especially in this current election year.
2) Select one of the three crimes listed, or develop your own. Discuss what actions you would take along with local police agencies to combat these impending issues.
ANSWER THE ABOVE DISCUSSION AND THEN REPLY TO MY CLASSMATE’S POST. EXPLAINING WHY YOU AGREE WITH HIS POST. (A MINIMUM OF 200 WORDS EACH)
The Super Bowl brings in massive amounts of money to the host city and state. Along with this major economic boost brings in many illicit crimes specifically human trafficking. As the state attorney to protect those within my jurisdiction it would require massive amounts of logistical planning and communications with the Federal Government, local and state law enforcement, and all the nonprofit organizations. Requesting the assistance from the Department of Homeland Security weeks in advance would help early detection possibly deter influencers. I refer to influencers as the pop-up talent or modeling agencies or any nonprofit that is recruiting certain demographics like age 16-30 leading up to the event. Furthermore, there would be further training conducted with all local business employees (hotels, restaurants, public transportation, etc.) on how to detect possibly human traffickers or victims of trafficking. This would include how to report, inquire, and alert law enforcement officers if they feel a crime is being committed. Additionally, we would work with local media outlets discussing and broadcasting what potential human traffickers look like or what businesses could be a front for illegal activity. These efforts would showcase our commitment to the safety and well being of not only our guests but the local citizens.
