WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A conference looking at violent crime and human trafficking in the Dakotas is planned in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in August.

U.S. Attorney for North Dakota Tim Purdon says conference is Aug. 12-14 at the Washington Pavilion.

The first day will focus on training sessions for health and social workers.

The conference will be open to the public the last two days. Those days will feature discussions about human trafficking and violence against women in North Dakota’s oil patch, Internet predators in the two states, sexual assault in Indian country, family violence and working with child victims of physical and sexual assault.
