Representative Curcio Supports Law Enforcement Community In Their Efforts To End Human Trafficking

(NASHVILLE) — Recently, State Representative Michael Curcio (R-Dickson) supported the efforts of members of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) during a three-day human trafficking operation in Brentwood, Tennessee which led to the arrests of 22 men.

The TBI conducted the operation last month in connection with the Brentwood Police Department, Homeland Security Investigations, and the office of the 21st District Attorney General Kim Helper.

These indictments are the latest in a series of successful outcomes achieved by local and state law enforcement in recent years related to human trafficking. Much of the credit can be traced to the partnership between these agencies and members of the Tennessee General Assembly — including Representative Curcio.

As Vice-Chairman of the House Criminal Justice Committee, Curcio and his colleagues worked to strengthen the state’s human trafficking laws in 2017. According to Shared Hope International, Tennessee ranks second among all 50 states in legislation geared toward combatting human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

Unfortunately, almost 94 Tennessee teenagers fall victim to human trafficking crimes every month. Representative Curcio is currently working with the TBI to examine the possibility of filing legislation for the 2018 session related to this issue, as well as additional types of criminal activity.

“As a father to three young children, it is extremely disturbing and disheartening that human trafficking has become such a widespread problem across our state,” said Representative Curcio. “I want to congratulate all agencies involved in this recent operation that led to a significant number of arrests. My colleagues and I in the House chamber renew our support for them; together, I know we can end human trafficking in Tennessee once and for all.”

Michael Curcio serves as Vice-Chairman of the House Criminal Justice Committee. He is also a member of the House Insurance & Banking Committee, as well as the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee. Curcio lives in Dickson and Represents House District 69, which includes Hickman County, as well as parts of Dickson and Maury Counties. He can be reached by email at [email protected] or by calling (615) 741-3513.
