Lansing, Mich. (WZMQ) – This week, the Michigan State Police (MSP) is joining forces with fellow law enforcement officers and commercial truckers to educate motorists about human trafficking.
Truckers Against Trafficking, an organization which fights human trafficking, alongside the MSP and officers from around the country are teaching those in positions to observe trafficking what red flags to watch out for.
According to the MSP rest area attendants, truck drivers, and public transportation company workers are in positions where they can witness human trafficking.
“Indicators are a little bit different if you see something at a rest area, maybe with a younger child or a female, say something, don’t just let something really bad happen to this person” Lt. Mark Giannunzio said.
The MSP first partnered with truckers against trafficking in 2015, for more information you can visit Truckersagainsttrafficking.org
