CLEVELAND (AP) - Federal prosecutors say Cleveland has been chosen as the site of one of six national enforcement teams focusing on human trafficking.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cleveland said Thursday that Cleveland was selected through a competitive process to participate in the Interagency Federal Law Enforcement Partnership to Combat Human Trafficking. Prosecutors say it’s aimed at streamlining the investigation and prosecution of federal human trafficking offenses.

The other sites for the teams are Minneapolis; Newark, New Jersey; Portland, Maine; Portland, Oregon; and Sacramento, California.
