(WCWF) -- This week on CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek will be joined by two guests to talk about the issue of sex trafficking in Northeast Wisconsin.

Special Agent Carl Waterstreet from the Wisconsin Department of Justice and victim advocate Shelby Mitchell will appear on the show.

Mitchell is with the sexual assault center at Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin.

Waterstreet is assigned to the Human Trafficking Bureau for the Wisconsin DOJ.

On the show, Mitchell and Waterstreet will talk about the ways different agencies are approaching the issue.

Mitchell will discuss some of the services available in the community to help victims. Waterstreet will talk about some of the challenges investigators face.

"Human trafficking is very mobile," Waterstreet said. "You may have a problem in Green Bay that is going to spread to Appleton to Wausau to Milwaukee over to Madison and create the circle. Major highways are great for making time to go on vacations. They're also great for trafficking people and trafficking drugs and they go hand in hand."

CW 14 Focus is a weekly, half-hour interview program that focuses on the issues important to people in northeast Wisconsin. Each week, Robert Hornacek will sit down with a different guest and go beyond the sound bites. The program will highlight the people making a difference in the community and give viewers an opportunity to get in depth perspective. CW 14 Focus airs Sundays at 10 a.m.
