Truckers enlisted in fight against human trafficking in Minnesota

As part of its ongoing effort to rescue human trafficking victims and bring traffickers to justice, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension on Tuesday announced that Minnesota law enforcement and the trucking industry will join together in the effort.

The BCA is hosting a meeting of about 90 trucking industry representatives, law enforcement and human trafficking experts that will also include several days of training on how to spot sex trafficking and how to respond when it is suspected. Attendees will hear about actual sex trafficking case scenarios from law enforcement, prosecutors and survivors and then educate other truckers in their companies, truck stop employees and others.
