COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – The Ohio State Patrol has a new group of partners to fight human sex trafficking…truckers.
The Patrol is teaming up with Truckers Against Trafficking to educate drivers to recognize the signs and to help.
It’s an effort that troopers say is already making a difference. They’re handing out training material to the tens of thousands of truckers who drive on Ohio’s roadways every day. They say truckers are in the perfect position to spot the victims of human trafficking and to get them help.
