Kentucky Streamlines Response to Human Trafficking Reports

In honor of National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Attorney General Andy Beshear is recognizing law enforcement efforts that have improved the state’s ability to combat human trafficking. Beshear said the outcome of a partnership with his office’s Department of Criminal Investigations, the Polaris Project, which oversees the National Human Trafficking Hotline, and the Kentucky State Police is a streamlined response to reports involving victims of sex and labor trafficking. National hotline tips are now routed through KSP Headquarters to dispatchers trained by Beshear’s office on how to disseminate information to the appropriate law enforcement agencies, as well as minimize trauma by taking a victim-centered approach.
