"G.H.O.S.T. will continue to protect the vulnerable by arresting offenders and helping inform the public about the dangers of sex trafficking and online predators. "
-Sheriff Christopher R. Swanson
The Genesee Human Oppression Strike Team is a critical piece of law enforcement working to protect our communities from the threat of sexual predators and fight against sex trafficking.
G.H.O.S.T.'s mission is simple: through proactive investigation, we bring an end to these violent crimes that have been too often overlooked or ignored by the legal system. G.H.O.S.T.'s certification program is also being adopted nationwide as a model for combatting such heinous offenses; with its multidisciplinary approach combining multiple law enforcement agencies with community support teams and medical personnel.
