REGION- During National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Michigan State Police (MSP) motor carrier officers are teaming up with officers from across the nation and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) to raise awareness of human trafficking.
From January 9-13, MSP officers will join with their colleagues in law enforcement, CVSA, and the organization Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) to educate motorists about the signs of human trafficking and to enforce laws that crack down on traffickers. The goal of this week-long, nationwide human trafficking initiative is to raise awareness and educate those individuals in positions to observe human trafficking taking place. People such as commercial motor vehicle drivers, public transportation companies, rest area attendants and truck stop employees.
The MSP first partnered with TAT in 2015 and has since been recognized as a national leader in human trafficking awareness and education.
