In this episode of the 411 Live, we talk to, Dawn Jones, former Lieutenant with the Milwaukee Police Department about domestic violence.
We discuss domestic violence and how it relates to sex trafficking. For the first time, Beverly Taylor and guest dive into something that has been hinted in the podcast or briefly mentioned, the segregation in Milwaukee. Dawn Jones is kind enough to open up about her childhood and how she grew up in a lower-class household. How there was a difference growing up in lower-class, where she would see every kind of nationality and culture to becoming a cop and seeing the segregation in Milwaukee up close and personal.
Dawn also opens up about some of her experiences as a police officer and how she got assigned to sex trafficking. She also talks about how uneducated the police department was in the past and what we can learn today to do better. She highlights how officers need training when it comes to handling sex trafficking victims in certain situations and how to investigate domestic violence of a victim of sex trafficking.
Join Beverly Taylor and guest as we discuss the relationship between sex trafficking, domestic violence, and the police department to help bring light to how the police department can put more effort into how they respond to sex trafficking situations.
