Hot Springs, AR – In a significant effort to combat human trafficking, seven women believed to be victims were offered services, and another 25 local victims were identified as part of Operation HOPE, conducted in Hot Springs this month.

According to Arkansas State Police (ASP) and the Arkansas Human Trafficking Council, the operation included services such as food, lodging, medical care, counseling, and drug rehabilitation. ASP Director Colonel Mike Hagar emphasized the state’s commitment to addressing human trafficking with empathy and support.

The operation involved federal, state, local, and non-governmental organizations, including the FBI and Homeland Security Investigations. Similar efforts in Jonesboro in February identified 30 adult females, offering services to five.

The investigation is ongoing, and further details have not been released.
