January 2020 - HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Human Trafficking Increases in Durham Region  

  

CRIME STOPPERS would like to remind the citizens of Durham Region of the increased number of incidents related to Human Trafficking.


Often referred to as “domestic sex trafficking”, there are numerous victims who are being forced into situations because of threats of violence and physical and psychological intimidation.

Young women, typically 12-18 years of age, are being exploited in the sex trade at the hands of predators. Victims are isolated from their families and friends and regularly moved from one hotel to the next to avoid detection.


If you are staying in a hotel or motel near major thoroughfares, be aware of some of the warning signs of Human Trafficking:


A female who appears fearful and timid and under the control of another person; she appears disoriented or confused; shows signs of physical, mental or substance abuse. She is not allowed to speak for herself and her activities are controlled by someone else

She is travelling with minimal or an excessive amount of luggage and there is a constant flow of traffic to and from her hotel or motel room.


If you are a victim - or - you know someone who is a victim of Human Trafficking, please call Police or Crime Stoppers.

 CRIME STOPPERS will pay up to $2000 cash for ANY information that leads to an arrest in this or ANY criminal matter. Callers never need to give their name or testify in court and we do NOT use call display.
