Human Trafficking

What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. Force, fraud, or coercion need not be present if the individual engaging in commercial sex is under 18 years of age. | National Human Trafficking Hotline

Human trafficking is a huge problem not only globally and nationally, but locally as well. According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, truck stops are an ideal venue for traffickers because of their frequently remote locations and transient customer base. Thus, it is vital that truck drivers know and understand the signs to look out for and the protocol for responding to possible trafficking scenarios.
