Marian Hatcher, Cook County Sheriff’s Project Manager, Survivor, SAFECHR’s “Special MASCOT” aka Strategic Advisor
Marian Hatcher, who serves as Senior Project Manager and Human Trafficking Coordinator at the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, has been awarded the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award from President Obama, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today. Hatcher is internationally recognized for her tireless efforts in fighting abuse against women in the form of sex trafficking, prostitution and domestic violence.
In her role with the Cook County Sheriff’s office, Hatcher coordinates several anti-trafficking efforts, including the National Johns Suppression Initiative (NJSI), which targets buyers of sex, the driving force of sex trafficking and prostitution. With Hatcher’s help, the NJSI has become a nationwide annual effort including more than 80 arresting agencies and nearly 200 partners. The NJSI to-date has resulted in 5,894 johns arrests.
Hatcher is an expert on sex trafficking. In addition to sitting on numerous boards, she has facilitated important training on trafficking and prostitution for various law enforcement groups including the F.B.I. and U.S. Department of Homeland Security. She has traveled the country speaking at various events and conference, shedding light on the prevalent issue of trafficking and telling her own story, a remarkable story that is.
After finding success in the corporate world post-college, Hatcher’s life descended into the depths of drug addiction, eventually becoming a victim of trafficking and domestic violence, losing everything in the process. She eventually found herself in the custody of the very law enforcement organization in which she is now employed, at the Cook County Jail. After completing a 120-day drug treatment program offered by the Sheriff’s office and necessaryprobation afterward, Hatcher went to work for the Sheriff’s office, working to make sure what happened to her doesn’t happen to other women.
