March 26: FREE Human Trafficking Education by Harris County Constables Office

This is a really disturbing topic, but it’s so vital that we educate ourselves about how to protect ourselves, our children, and how to recognize red flags. On Thursday, March 26, at 7:00 PM, Investigator Tonya Ward with the Harris County Constables Office Precinct 4 will do a presentation on Human Trafficking Awareness at Lone Star College-Tomball Library in Room L-129.

The Tomball Republican Women’s Club, a Chapter of Texas Federation of Republican Women (TFRW), is hosting the event. You don’t have to be a member to attend; it’s free and open to the public. Coffee, tea, water, and cookies will be provided.

In 2009, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Ron Hickman created the Regulatory Enforcement Unit, which began investigating questionable businesses, including those suspected of being sexually oriented businesses.

In 2008, Ward joined a Special Crimes and Narcotics Joint Task Force and in 2013 she hired on with the Harris County Constable’s Office Precinct 4. She serves Harris County as an Investigator of Human Trafficking where she has successfully rescued 18 Human Trafficking Victims; 8 being juveniles and sits on the Human Trafficking Advisory Council for Congressman Ted Poe.
