Semi Drivers Help to Cut Down on Human Trafficking
During the morning show today, we talked about the growing concern regarding human trafficking and how people can help out.
This week state police across Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana are asking for help in identifying potential victims of human trafficking.
Police are focusing on semi drivers because rest areas and hotels are common spots for human traffickers.
According to WILX-News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, State police are teaming up this week with an organization known as Truckers against trafficking and Ohio and Indiana state police to spread awareness about human trafficking.
These efforts are all part of January being National Human Trafficking Awareness Month.
Several State police officers say with the problem of human trafficking not going away overnight, educating people in the trucking industry like drivers, rest stop attendants and employees give officers extra eyes and ears on Michigan highways.
