During this episode, Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak interview special guest John Vanek who is a speaker, consultant, and author, and a nationally recognized authority on human trafficking and the response to modern slavery. John managed the San Jose Police Department Human Trafficking Task Force from 2006-2011.
John’s knowledge on the collaborative response to human trafficking and task force operations have been utilized by the United States Department of Justice, the Office of the United States Attorneys, California’s Office of the Attorney General, California POST, the California District Attorneys Association, the National Law Enforcement Training Network, the Not For Sale Campaign, Police One, the Freedom Network Training Institute, and other governmental and private organizations.
John retired from the San Jose Police Department in the rank of lieutenant, holds a Master of Arts in Leadership from Saint Mary’s College of California, and is the author of the forth-coming book, The Essential Abolitionist: What You Need to Know About Human Trafficking & Modern Slavery. (To be released in January 2016.) To learn more about anti-trafficking efforts, check out GCWJ’s Human Trafficking Professional Courses Online.
