Racine Police Department Acknowledges Racine Dominicans

Noteworthy Acknowledgement

The following was included in the    Racine Police Department 2015 Annual Report in a write-up titled, "Racine Coalition Against Human Trafficking":

"In 2012, the Racine Dominicans launched an aggressive campaign designed to bring attention to the issue of human trafficking locally and beyond. The Racine Police Department was quick to partner with the Dominican Sisters in this important matter of public safety. What began as a small community gathering rapidly evolved into a community-wide movement in the fight against human trafficking.
