ST. CLOUD -- Minnesota U.S. Attorney General Andrew Luger stopped in St. Cloud today (Wednesday) to talk with local law enforcement.

Luger is at the head of a big push to crack down on sex trafficking across Minnesota. He says getting out and making visits across the state helps his office and improves coordination among those who are trying to combat trafficking.

He told WJON News visits like this are really listening sessions where he can hear from the front lines and bring concerns and information back to his office.

Luger says the increased efforts to arrest and prosecute sex traffickers is paying off. He says they learn more every day about their habits and practices and the statewide coordination is making a difference in getting them off the streets.

The U.S. Attorney also spoke at the St. Cloud Legal Aid's Access to Justice luncheon as part of his visit.
