Hazlet, NJ — A retired NJ police officer who was drawing nearly $80,000 a year in pension has been arrested on child sex trafficking charges. James Keenan, 47, was arrested this week for sex trafficking a teenage girl.

Keenan was indicted for the following crimes: Sex Trafficking of a Child, Attempted Sex Trafficking of a Child and Attempted Enticement. Considered a fugitive from justice, Keenan was apparently on the run when his fellow boys in blue caught up with him in NJ.

According to the Beaverton Police Department bulletin on the case:

The indictment and arrest follow a month long investigation by detectives from the Beaverton Police Department and the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force. This is an ongoing investigation. The underage victim is being provided services to help during her recovery process.

While few details concerning the victim in the case have emerged, the arrest was a collaborative effort involving the FBI and several state and local law enforcement agencies. According to the bulletin:

Portland FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force, CETF, is a law-enforcement partnership that is dedicated to identifying and arresting child predators, recovering minor victims of sex trafficking and on-line exploitation, and addressing sexual exploitation. The CETF consists of FBI agents, detectives, and officers from Portland-area agencies that have a firm commitment in addressing child exploitation. The member agencies are Beaverton Police Department, Portland Police Bureau, Tigard Police Department, Hillsboro Police Department, and the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.

How the alleged child sex trafficker was caught remains a mystery. However, as TFTP has reported extensively, the FBI allegedly maintains a child pornography website for those purposes.
