Collaboration Agreement with Mosaic Family Services

By | Events | No Comments

We are most excited about our Collaboration Agreement with Mosaic Family Services. Mosaic is a safe haven for survivors of human rights abuses, including human trafficking and domestic violence.

All of the incidents reported through the Operation Compass North Texas mobile app will be sent to our North Texas partners Mosaic Family Services and when appropriate, on to the Dallas Police Department. This vital information, the result of empowered citizens being able to report what they’ve seen, enables Mosaic to provide aid it might not otherwise, and helps Dallas Police bring tra ckers to justice.
