The Cheyenne Police Department Human Trafficking Task Force along with the FBI and US Marshals conducted a two day operation on January 17 and 18 to target sex trafficking of adults and juveniles.

Additionally, the task force takes enforcement action against those associated with, or participating in commercial sex trafficking. Over 25 law enforcement personnel, including CPD detectives, CPD Victim’s Services, CPD patrol officers, FBI agents and the US Marshals were involved in planning and executing the operation.
