Know what to look for – Stop Human Trafficking
The Michigan State Police (MSP) is increasing its efforts to raise awareness of human trafficking occurring in Michigan. As part of the increased effort, and with grant funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, the MSP has developed a video for in-home technicians to assist these workers in identifying possible human trafficking situations. Workers who are in people’s homes on a day-to-day basis are a critical part of identifying potential cases of human trafficking and combatting this horrific crime. Human trafficking can often go unnoticed, even by individuals interacting with a victim. Recognizing the indicators can help alert in-home technicians to a human trafficking situation. While no single indicator is necessarily proof of human trafficking, recognizing the signs is the first step in identifying potential victims.
