⚜️For this Protector Nation podcast I’m excited to have as my guest Tim Ballard @timballard89 Founder and President of @OURRescue. We discuss the human trafficking of the most vulnerable of society CHILDREN!
🤜 MORE ABOUT TIM🤛
He spent more than a decade working as a Special Agent for the Department of Homeland Security, where he was assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and deployed as an undercover operative for the U.S. Child Sex Tourism Jump Team.
He has worked in that role and since in every type of case in the fight to dismantle child trafficking rings. He’s worked in the U.S. and in multiple foreign countries to infiltrate child trafficking organizations. He has successfully dismantled dozens of these organizations and rescued children from slavery and exploitation.
While working for the government, Ballard saw how much more is needed in the fight against child trafficking and exploitation across the world. In 2013, he and a team of former government operatives left the security of their careers to accomplish the work of rescuing children as a private foundation – Operation Underground Railroad. At O.U.R., Tim has created a team that can work in any jurisdiction and with law enforcement to rescue children directly.
