Human Trafficking materials distributed in Waushara County
Jessica M. Bielmeier, ASTOP victim & legal advocate for Waushara and Green Lake County, is currently partnering with Waushara County District Attorney’s Office Detective John Wiesmueller and the Waushara County Human Trafficking Committee to provide Human Trafficking education and materials to the County’s hospitality industry, truck stops, campgrounds and resorts.
Next month the group will be working with Jonelle Erickson, Reading/Math Intervention teacher with the Wautoma Area School District, to assist with the presentations to local schools.
Human Trafficking con-tinues to be a growing issue statewide and Waushara County is making every effort to educate those who could potentially be at risk. No one thinks it is an issue until it actually happens here and education is form of prevention.
