Local cops and D.A.s visit Israel for human trafficking solutions

Bay Area and Israeli Top officials meet to discuss combatting human trafficking

As Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen stood in the security line at the airport in November, waiting to fly from San Francisco to Tel Aviv, he noticed something that seemed a little ironic.

“The video that’s playing is a video TSA has put together, all about human trafficking,” he said.

As it happened, Rosen and 10 other Bay Area law enforcement officials were on their way to Israel to talk to their counterparts about that very subject, and how the Jewish state has made huge strides in combating it.

The Bay Area delegates met with a range of people working on the problem in Israel, from Knesset members to nonprofit workers, as well as Israel’s national coordinator for anti-trafficking, Dina Dominitz of the Ministry of Justice.
