Training someone to recognize the indicators of trafficking is vital to stopping the crime. Think of it this way if someone robs your house, you recognize that the crime happened, you report it, action is taken. However, if you don’t recognize that the crime was committed you never know to report and and therefore action isn’t taken. By training the community we are providing opportunity for reports to be made and action to be taken.
