Suspect Human Trafficking?

​Human Trafficking is identified by the trafficker's act, means, and purpose, with one exception.

Act: Recruits, harbors, transports, provides or obtains a person

Means: Uses force, fraud, or coercion. 

Purpose: To exploit and profit from a person’s labor or services.

Exception: When a person younger than 18 is used to perform a commercial sex act, it is a crime regardless of whether there is any force, fraud, or coercion involved. Report it to the national human trafficking hotline website...

If you believe you may have information about a trafficking situation:

  • Call the National Human Trafficking Hotline toll-free hotline at 1-888-373-7888: Anti-Trafficking Hotline Advocates are available 24/7 to take reports of potential human trafficking.

  • Text the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 233733. Message and data rates may apply.

  • Chat with the National Human Trafficking Hotline via www.humantraffickinghotline.org/chat.

  • Submit a tip online through the anonymous online reporting form below. However, please note that if the situation is urgent or occurred within the last 24 hours we would encourage you to call, text or chat.

They will want to know...

  • Do you know the person you are calling about and their situation?

  • What did you see or what did they tell you?

  • Do you still have contact with them?

  • What specifically has your "friend" told you that indicates they are being exploited, or that they were recruited, harbored, transported, transferred, or received by means of force, coercion or fraud?

If your "friend" is able and willing to call or text the hotline, that is even better.
