Recently the task force received a $575,000 grant to help combat sexual exploitation in Stearns County. Previously, the task force has had great success by using modern practices in investigating and detecting crimes that have resulted in receiving over 350 tips, investigating over 100 cases, charging 44 felonies, and providing support to at least 239 separate trafficking victims since the start of the task force in 2018.
