Just in late August, Hillsborough County, Florida police arrested over 100 individuals in a human trafficking sting operation.
Much more work to do
The new measures in Florida to help members of the community recognize and report human trafficking is a good start. However, far more work to combat human trafficking remains necessary.
Considering the pervasiveness of this crime, every police force across America needs a division solely dedicated to fighting human trafficking. Permanently eradicating this evil remains long overdue.
Anyone who wishes to report what they believe to be human trafficking can contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline via phone at 1 (888) 373-7888 or by text at 233733.
