Preventing human trafficking in mid-Michigan

Posted: Updated:

(03/07/14) - It's a sad reality, but human trafficking is a growing problem across the country and right here in Michigan and now many local communities are trying to do something about it.

Law enforcement, state lawmakers and residents gathered together for a seminar at the Elba Township Hall Thursday night. 

Their goal is to end human trafficking by educating people in their community.

Cevin Brown, Community Service Trooper for the Michigan State Police Department has this advice for parents.

"Be in your kids business, when I go out, I talk to parents all the time about sexting and cyber bullying and electronics. They are not only on the streets doing human trafficking, they are also doing it on the Internet."

Right now, there are bills moving through Lansing to provide a safe place for sex slaves and lifting a statute of limitations on human trafficking cases.
