“Just Ask” is a non-profit organization created by detectives from the Fairfax County Police Department as a collaborative of County agencies, schools, and community leaders to help educate and raise awareness about human trafficking in Northern Virginia.  “Just Ask” routinely provides training to youth, parents, and community members on the realities and dangers of human trafficking; as well as providing effective methods of prevention, in coordination with law enforcement efforts to combat the issue.  As a direct result of these efforts, The Fairfax County Police Department has been able to rescue and recover victims as well as identify and prosecute traffickers in state and federal court for violations of human trafficking laws.
