Operation Cross Country is a yearly national effort by the FBI that claims to target the sexual exploitation of children for prostitution.

Locally, FBI agents team up with members of the Oklahoma City Police Department's Vice Unit and agents with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs' Human Trafficking Unit.

Over a three day period in early October, 29 individuals in Oklahoma City were arrested. One of those arrested was an Oklahoma City police officer. No 'Johns' were targeted.

JohnTV will continue to follow each criminal case to its conclusion.
