These workers’ reports could make all the difference in the world.
Therefore, the Florida Transportation Department, Attorney General Ashley Moody, along with Busing on the Lookout and Truckers Against Trafficking are working to enable residents working in these industries to recognize human trafficking and report it to the authorities.
To make this happen, Truckers Against Trafficking and AG Moody put together a human trafficking training recognition program. This program, according to Moody, can help workers in transportation and in casinos to spot victims of trafficking.
Meanwhile, the Florida Transportation Department is informing its workers, the general public, and its partners about signs of human trafficking.
Because of human traffickers’ documented tendencies to target people at bus stops and terminals, station workers and bus drivers who know what to look for can inform law enforcement and prevent more people from suffering due to trafficking.
On October 4, Florida is hosting a 2022 Human Trafficking Summit. This summit will take place online at HumanTraffickingSummit.com. Anyone with the ability to join remains encouraged to do so.
