Human Trafficking Course for Officers

In Awareness, Human Trafficking on June 13, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Florida officials are fighting for freedom.

”The Florida Police Chief’s are committed to do what it takes to end human trafficking in our state,” said Walter McNeil.

In a new training course, officers will be taught how to spot human trafficking victims.

”Thank you for taking this online training to learn more about human trafficking so you can stop this horrific crime from occurring in our state,” said Pam Bondi.

In 2011, Florida had more than 3,900 reports of human trafficking. The volume makes Florida the third most trafficked state.

“We’re going to continue everything we can as we told you we’re partnering up with the business community, attacking with new legislation and on an educational front,” said Bondi.

New recruits have been trained to spot trafficking since 2006. Now every officer will be trained.
