Hotline aims to cut down on human trafficking in NJ

TRENTON -

The State Attorney General's Office needs help in cracking down on human trafficking.

The New Jersey Human Trafficking Task force has launched a new hotline for residents to report suspected human trafficking. Officials say New Jersey, and Atlantic City specifically, are prime locations for human trafficking because of the central location and the high population of foreign born residents, so the 24–hour hotline is being launched in advance of the 2014 Superbowl at the Meadowlands.

The event is expected to bring thousands of people to the state, increasing the risk of men, women, and children being exploited for the purpose of commercial sexual activity and forced labor.

If you have any suspicions of people being held against their will you are urged to call the hotline at 1– 855– END-NJ–HT.
