Human trafficking is not an invisible crime. It can be spotted if you know what to look for
Look for individuals who:
Are not free to leave or come and go as he/she wishes
Show signs of being controlled — they may be fearful, anxious, submissive, tense or avoid eye contact
Are unaware of current location, date, or time
Are interrupted or stopped by someone else when they try to speak for themselves
Do not have control of own money, identification, or other personal possessions
Also, not only is anyone under the age of 18 induced into commercial sex a victim of human trafficking, anyone who facilitates or participates in commercial sex with minors are considered sex traffickers under federal law.
