The Special Investigations Mobile Operations Network (SIMON) was developed in response to a local law enforcement agency’s need for a surveillance tool to support their Human Trafficking Task Force’s participation in Operation Cross Country VIII.

Operation Cross Country is a nationwide effort targeting the growing problem of human sex trafficking in the U.S. that was first launched in 2008. In June of 2014; the FBI; it local, state, and federal law enforcement partners; and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) conducted Operation Cross Country VIII. This operation included enforcement actions in 106 cities across 54 FBI field divisions nationwide and resulted in 168 recoveries of children who were being victimized through prostitution. Additionally, 281 pimps were arrested on state and federal charges.

SIMON along with cleverly disguised IP cameras proved to be a valuable asset to the Human Trafficking Task Force’s 3-day operation which led to the recovery of 13 women, the arrest of 2 pimps and provided added intelligence/evidence to support ongoing investigations being conducted on several other individuals.

As stated by a police investigator and local agency Task Force member that deployed SIMON during Operation Cross Country VIII; “SIMON was extremely portable and almost effortless to setup and operate. Having the ability to observe real-time interactions between the victims and subjects was both a safety factor but also aided in ongoing investigations. The SIMON surpassed my expectations in a covert real time video system/platform. Thanks Enforcement Technology Group, Inc. (ETGI) and Specialty Wireless Advanced Technologies, LLC (SWAT, LLC) for your dedication to help keeping the law enforcement community safe by developing new equipment which allows us to perform our duties more safely and effectively."
