Human trafficking is a serious crime. Every day, women, men, girls, and boys are forced into commercial sex trafficking, forced labor situations, and domestic servitude. As professional drivers, the nature of their job allows them to observe, identify, and report these crimes. Drivers tend to frequent the most common places where many of these exchanges happen, including motels, restaurants, truck stops, rest areas, and gas stations. That puts them in a position to help disrupt established trafficking networks and enable law enforcement to rescue victims before it's too late.
This course is designed to expose learners to the knowledge about what human trafficking is, how to recognize it, and what they can do about it.
After completing this course, learners will be able to:
- Describe human trafficking and identify those who are most at risk
- Recognize the signs of human trafficking
- Explain how to respond appropriately when they suspect human trafficking is taking place
