Truckers Against Trafficking aims to cut down on sex trafficking

In 2015, law enforcement agencies across Ohio reported 102 human trafficking investigations. This led to 104 arrests, 33 successful prosecutions, the identification of 203 potential victims and 130 suspected traffickers. In an effort to stop criminals from exploiting trafficking victims in Ohio, the patrol has partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking to ensure that trucking schools in Ohio will be required to provide one hour of human trafficking awareness training for students obtaining a CDL for the first time, as truck stops are one of the leading areas where sex trafficking occurs.
