As part of our ongoing strategy designed to focus on the crimes involving prostitution and human trafficking, the Yarmouth Police Department, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and several international law-enforcement partners, linked together last weekend as part of Operation Cross Country X.

Operation Cross Country X was an international investigation which focused on underage human trafficking. The operation resulted in 82 minors being rescued here in the United States and 239 traffickers and their associates arrested.

Operations took place in a number of locations, including hotels, truck stops, and street corners all across America and beyond.
The Yarmouth Police Proactive Anti-Crime Unit and Detective Division, as well as members of the Dennis and Barnstable Police Departments worked closely with the FBI and members of cooperating motels here in our community.

Operation Cross Country X is the largest ever in the history of the initiative, with 55 FBI field offices and 74 Child Exploitation Task Forces representing more than 400 law enforcement organizations taking part in the operation.

The Yarmouth Police Department will continue to work with our partners in local, state, and federal Law Enforcement to actively address this crime in our community. If anyone has information about prostitution and human trafficking please contact Yarmouth Police Department Detective David Schneeweis 508-775-0445 ext. 2118.

For additional information on Operation Cross Country X and the Innocence Lost initiative, please visit www.fbi.gov

This release was prepared and distributed by the Command Staff of the Yarmouth Police Department. For further information please call the Office of the Chief of Police at 508-775-0445 extension 2115 or email us at info@yarmouthpolice.com

On Saturday, October 22, from 10AM to 2PM the Yarmouth Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 12th opportunity in six years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

Please bring your pills for disposal to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters located at 340 Higgins Crowell Road in West Yarmouth. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last April, Americans turned in 447 tons (over 893,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 11 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 6.4 million pounds—about 3,200 tons—of pills.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse.
Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.
Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.
In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the October 22 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Diversion website or contact Yarmouth Police Evidence Officer Philip Magnuson at pmagnuson@yarmouth.ma.us
Please also note that the Yarmouth Police Department has a secure Drug Collection box located in our lobby at YPD Headquarters and any unwanted prescription drugs are accepted here all year long 24/7.

This release was prepared and distributed by the Command Staff of the Yarmouth Police Department. For further information please call the Office of the Chief of Police at 508-775-0445 extension 2115 or email us at info@yarmouthpolice.com
