Daggett County Holding Human Trafficking Seminar This Week
By Kristin Forbis, Dec 2, 2019
The Daggett County Task Force is holding a special seminar concerning the threats, dangers and trends of human trafficking. Sadly, anyone can be a victim but 50% of victims are under the age of 16 and 80% of victims are female. There are various types of human trafficking and it does not mean that victims have moved across borders or states. It is a problem that exists in every country around the world, across cities, suburbs and rural towns alike. Allison Smith, Outreach Specialist for Trafficking in Persons Program, and Amy Graham, a Victim Specialist for the FBI, will discuss the current trends and practices of human trafficking during the event on Tuesday, December 3rd at 5pm at the Daggett County Comission Chambers. Please report human trafficking tips to the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888. If you have questions or need more information, call 435-784-3218, Extension 220.
