Lufkin Dream Center to host first responder training

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The Lufkin Dream Center has partnered with Traffick 911 and the Department of Homeland Security to

educate first responders on domestic minor sex trafficking.

Founder of the Lufkin Dream Center Billie Jean Johnson says first responders such as CPS workers, ministers, and teachers

Will learn how to help children being trafficked, what signs to look for and how to get law enforcement involved.

"What we've seen at the dream center it doesn't look typically like what we think when we think of child sex trafficking its not the pimp in the fur coat it maybe the parents that are addicted to drugs that they are selling their children for their habit," said Johnson.

The training starts Thursday morning at 8:00 a.m. in Community Service Building Room 104 at Angelina College.

The training is provided at no cost.
