Network Analysis

Traffickers in the illicit massage industry are profiting with little to no consequence.

This is a result of many factors–their sophisticated operations, regulatory loopholes, the lack of public awareness, victim shaming, and flawed enforcement tactics (to name a few). If we want to stop exploitation and defeat trafficking in IMBs, then we need to attack it for what it is: organized crime.

We provide strategic and actionable analysis for law enforcement partners in order to drive more effective investigations of criminal networks. Our analysts collect and analyze all publicly available and subscription-based information on IMBs to provide a fuller picture of what’s happening beyond the storefront.

We provide:
  • Network maps with linkages between businesses, phone numbers, individuals and other locations
  • ‍In-depth assessments, including social media analysis, on IMB owners and other associated individuals
  • Insight into new or re-located IMBs and suspected money laundering businesses

“The Network is an invaluable resource to the law enforcement community. Not only can they identify illicit massage businesses in your area, but they also help take the burden off your agency when gathering intelligence, and even provide native-speaking experts to help with operations. If you work illicit massage businesses, you should get to know The Network.”

Who We Partner With

Our partners include local, state, and federal law enforcement, regulatory authorities, anti-trafficking service providers, and community-based organizations. We believe an effective approach to counter-trafficking requires a network of partners with diverse strengths. As retired four-star General Stanley McChrystal once wrote, "To defeat a networked enemy we had to become a network ourselves."
