    1. July Lunch Exchange – Industry Focus-Public Service @ Wildwood Country Resort
      11:30 am – 1:30 pm

       

      Human trafficking affects 20.9 million people worldwide each year, an estimated 1.5 million cases in North America alone. Human trafficking is a market-driven criminal industry that is based on the principles of supply and demand, like drugs or arms trafficking. Many factors make children and adults vulnerable to human trafficking. However, human trafficking does not exist solely because many people are vulnerable to exploitation. Every year, human traffickers generate billions of dollars by victimizing millions of people in the United States and around the world. Small communities often become targets for traffickers due to lack of knowledge of the growing problem and the “not in my community” mindset.

       

      Join us at the on July 8 at the Chamber Lunch Exchange as we welcome the Sumter County Sheriffs Department as part of our Industry Focus series with a focus on Public Service. Speaker Edie Neal from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will talk about human trafficking in Florida and how the FDLE partners with local departments like the Sumter County Sheriffs Department to provide resources, support, and preventative measures to protect citizens.

       

      Special Agent Edie Neal has a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement Administration. She has worked with the FDLE for nearly 13 years.

       

      The Chamber Lunch Exchange will be held at the Wildwood Country Resort from 11:30am to 1pm. The Wildwood Country Resort is located at 5604 Heritage Blvd in Wildwood. The cost to attend is $12 for members and $18 for non members. RSVP is required to attend.
