New London, MN — On Sunday, October 14, 2018, community members from the New London area are invited to join together for a Community Conversation on October 14 from 6pm to 8pm at Peace Lutheran Church. The evening will focus on two topics: Don’t be a Victim of Fraud or Scams and Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation in Rural Minnesota. A question and answer session will follow. Topics are presented by the Kandiyohi County Sherriff’s Office and Safe Avenues. Open to the public, but please note that parental discretion advised for the Human Trafficking segment of the Community Conversation.

Title:  Don’t be a victim of fraud or scams:  What you need to know.

Description:  The Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office has launched a new crime prevention program called TRIAD. The driving force behind this initiative is fraud and scams of our seniors, but all of us are subjected to crimes of fraud which can be financially devastating. Fraud and scam cases are set to double from 2017 to 2018.  Learn ways to prevent this from happening in your life and gain a better understanding of the complex issues that law enforcement faces when investigating these cases.

Title:  Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation in Rural MN:  It’s happening here.  What you need to know.  

Description:  Community members play a critical role in the identification and intervention of exploitation and sex trafficking.  Join us as we look at this phenomenon in rural Minnesota.  You’ll learn how it happens, what it looks like, and how to keep those around you safe, especially in the age of technology.

Light refreshments will be provided, and the event is free and open to the public. The New London Communities in Action has had Community Conversations in the past few years, covering a wide range of topics, including: New London’s 150th Anniversary, how life in Rural Minnesota is changing, and what would we like to see in a new library.
