Trucker group, multi-state police agencies partnering to fight human trafficking
The Michigan State Police motor carrier division, Ohio State Highway Patrol and Indiana State Police have partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking to teach motorists to recognize the signs of human trafficking, according to a news release.
In addition, they’ll be working to enforce laws that crack down on traffickers.
“The goal of this week-long tristate human trafficking initiative is to raise awareness and educate those individuals in positions to observe human trafficking taking place, such as commercial motor vehicle drivers, public transportation companies, rest area attendants and truck stop employees,” said Captain Michael Krumm, commander of the MSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division.
To report trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 888-373-7888.
