Congratulations Byron Fassett! What an honor to receive this award for such important work! The AMBER Alert in Indian Country salutes you, and looks forward to more good work together in the future.The AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program (AATTAP) celebrates its own Program Manager Bryon Fassett as he receives the Champion of Freedom Award from the North Texas Coalition Against Human Trafficking. Byron is nationally recognized for his years of dedication and leadership in the fight against human trafficking and exploitation. Past award winners include Texas Governor Abbott, DPD/FWPD, Earth X, and the Texas Fraternal Order of Eagles.

"This is a great honor for Byron and we are very fortunate to have him on the AMBER Alert and NCJTC team, sharing his expertise and continuing his work to protect children," said Janell Rasmussen, AATTAP Administrator.

Over his decades with the Dallas Police Department and through his longstanding and continued work with AATTAP and the National Criminal Justice Training Center of Fox Valley Technical College, Byron has developed, taught, and stewarded methods, resources, and initiatives which have bettered law enforcement's work to combat human trafficking and the exploitation of youth.

We are honored to work with Byron, and look forward to continued progress in training and technical assistance which prepares and equips law enforcement, public safety, and other child protection professionals in response to endangered, missing, and abducted children, and in the fight against human trafficking.
