Local Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) Facts

<back

Convened and facilitated by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office (ACDAO), SafetyNet meetings are designed to provide an immediate response to Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) in Alameda County. The purpose of these multi-disciplinary team meetings is to ensure victim safety for youth at the moment of their identification and throughout their potential interface with any system.

  • Of SafetyNet youth, 80% have a juvenile arrest history, but only 27% re-offend into the adult system.
  • All but 2.5% of youth trafficked to Alameda County are from California.
Why are they vulnerable?
