On June 6, 2018, the Washington County DA's Office joined with local and regional law enforcement agencies in a collaborative effort to combat human trafficking in the greater Portland / Vancouver metro area. A Washington County Deputy DA trained and experienced in sexual assault and child abuse cases provided planning assistance and on-call consultation for law enforcement throughout the day-long mission. Thanks to the hard work of our own Washington County Sheriff's Office and Hillsboro Police Department as well as their partners in other neighboring agencies the coordinated effort yielded over three dozen arrests for prostitution related offenses. The DA's Office is proud to continue our ongoing efforts to protect the most vulnerable members of the Washington County community. Please see joint release for more details.
