MoDOT Spreading Awareness on Human Trafficking During January

January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, and the Missouri Department of Transportation is joining forces with the Missouri State Highway Patrol and local law enforcement to combat the crime of human trafficking in the Show-Me State.

In 2018, MoDOT Director Patrick McKenna signed the Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking pledge, providing specialized training to employees about the common indicators of human trafficking and how to report potential cases.

According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, there were 240 human trafficking cases reported in Missouri in 2021.

If you suspect someone is being forced to engage in any activity from which they can’t leave—commercial sex, housework, farm work, or other activity—call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline at 1-888-373-7888 or text BeFree (233733). 

Information is available online at humantraffickinghotline.org.
