Operation Safety Net Commences in Cleveland

Cleveland - United States Marshal Pete Elliott, Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams, Cuyahoga County Sheriff David Schilling, East Cleveland Police Chief Scott Gardner, and Newburgh Heights Police Chief John Majoy have announced the beginning of Operation Safety Net. This is a U.S. Marshals led initiative aimed at recovering endangered, missing juveniles. 

Over the next month, the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force will work with local law enforcement agencies to identify missing children who are at high risk for human trafficking, abuse or neglect. They will then partner with local media outlets and children’s services to try and locate these children and return them to safe places. 

Operation Safety Net will be primarily focused in the city of Cleveland and immediate surrounding cities, such as East Cleveland. However, the operation will be run throughout the entire northern half of Ohio with the NOVFTF working with local law enforcement partners across the district.

The U.S. Marshals Service will be asking for support from the community in locating these missing kids. 

Tips about where these kids may be can be called into the U.S. Marshals tipline at 1-866-492-6833. Photos and information about the missing kids can be found at WTAM.com keyword MISSING and FOX8.com keyword MISSING.
