Arizona Guidelines: Regional Response to Youth Sex Trafficking

Human trafficking is a devastating crime that often operates in plain sight. In 2017, there were 406 calls and 181 reported cases to the National Human Trafficking Hotline in Arizona. While less than 2% of human trafficking victims are ever identified, indicators of sex trafficking can be easier to spot than you think. We all have a role to play in preventing human trafficking. Help raise awareness towards human trafficking with the "See Something, Say Something" indicator card.
