2016 saw bump in Colorado human trafficking cases reported to national hotline

The number of human trafficking cases reported in IN has jumped in the previous year, according to new data released this week.

In 2016, OH became the first state to require that all new truck drivers get one hour of training on how to recognize and report cases of human trafficking.

For Massachusetts, 88 cases of human trafficking were reported to the national hotline in 2016; that included 67 cases of sex trafficking and 15 cases of labor trafficking.

The company that collected the data through the hotline, Polaris, said that they handled more than 8,000 cases across the country past year.

The Hawaii increase was marginal when compared with the overall trend for the entire United States, where 2016 statistics showed a 35 percent year-to-year increase.

More survivors than ever reached out for help. "That applies to survivors and the people who are around them, whether it's a neighbor or professional". "And we're able to provide whatever assistance that individual is looking for".

Brnovich said that financial information allows his office to be on the cutting edge when it comes to not only human trafficking cases, but also drug- and terrorism-related cases.

Timea E. Nagy, a human trafficking survivor, author, global trainer, and social advocate, will present the workshop.

"What we're seeing is gangs are getting into sex trafficking because there's a lot of money to be made", said Timmons.
