About our speakers:

Detective Mike Miraglia has been an Idaho law enforcement officer for over 17 years serving as a member of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, Gang Detective specializing in gang-related human trafficking – and currently as a Detective with the Boise Police Violent Crimes Unit. In partnership with local and federal agencies, Mike has successfully investigated several local regional sex trafficking organizations and is credited with the first successful federal human trafficking conviction in the District of Idaho.

Officer Ray Ellis has been with the Meridian Police Department since June of 1997. Before that, he served with the Orange County Sheriff's Department in Southern California. In the two decades he has been a part of MPD, Officer Ellis has served as a Sex Crimes Investigator, Patrol Officer and multiple stints as an SRO; he is also a master level instructor for Idaho POST. Married to the same woman for 34 years, with three adult children and a grandson, Officer Ellis is looking to retire in the next couple years and moving on to another platform for helping kids and serving this community.

Officer Dave Gomez is a former electronics engineer who made a career change to police officer in 2009.  He currently works for the Meridian Police department and is the school resource officer at Mountain View High School in Meridian Idaho.  Officer Gomez has become the local expert educating parents about the dangers of social media with regards to their kids.  Gomez stays on top of the latest trends in social media and how adult predators use social media to entice children out of their homes.  Officer Gomez offers a lecture that is usually disturbing but very relevant to today’s youth and the world they are growing up in.
