Nebraska cracking down on sex trafficking

Nebraska cracking down on sex trafficking

The trafficking of people is an global epidemic. But spotting the problem and prosecuting the offenders is very hard.

To date, PennDOT has trained more than 500 employees to notice signs of potential trafficking situations through a project to modernize driver and vehicle services operation called GO-TIME. Mr. D'Souza had never heard of human trafficking and specifically never of labor trafficking.

They are hoping to add more content as the year progresses. Human-trafficking is believed to be the third-largest criminal activity in the world and is a form of human slavery that must be addressed. He said, 'You want to die? I was literally born into human trafficking.

Experts say anyone can play a role in preventing human trafficking but people often don't know what to look for or what questions to ask.

"This is a human life that we are referring to". We take you in individually so that there is no one in there trying to answer for you.

But standing up for kids can be a bit of an uphill battle. He agreed and she checked into a local center providing services to victims. So prevention is key.
