Pittsburgh - January 27, 2017 - Marinus Analytics LLC has joined DeliverFund's International Human Trafficking Analysis Center (iHTAC), a consortium of organizations who've partnered to craft holistic solutions to the problem of human trafficking. The iHTAC is the central all source, shared knowledge bank on human trafficking activity, human traffickers and their networks, and the primary dissemination and coordination point for law enforcement and select nonprofits working to end modern day slavery.
The combined capabilities of Marinus Analytic’s Traffic Jam and DeliverFund's uniquely qualified personnel allowed law enforcement agents efforts to continue without disruption during the recent Backpage.com's closure of its adult ads section.
“At Marinus, we are always prepared for change to happen in the human trafficking space. We work with DeliverFund to provide them with the technology tools needed to effectively combat sex trafficking. When Backpage.com closed its adult section, we remained a step ahead, enabling detectives and analysts across the nation continued access to the information they need to save lives. DeliverFund continues to provide top-notch service and support to our country’s law enforcement.”, Emily Kennedy, Founder/CEO Marinus Analytics.
“DeliverFund started working with Emily and the team at Marinus Analytics months ago in preparation for the inevitable shift in advertising at Backpage.com, and as a result of Traffic Jam’s superior capabilities and those preparations, our intelligence collection operations were unaffected by Backpage.com’s recent actions. Other Traffic Jam like tools we have access to were rendered useless by the move, but Traffic Jam never missed a beat.”, Nic McKinley, Founder/Executive Director DeliverFund.
