Truckers Take on A New Kind of Traffic

Human trafficking is happening right in front of us, but did you know that truckers can play a crucial role in bringing these crimes to light? The Kansas City Police Department (KCPD), the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) have joined forces with the trucking industry to raise awareness and educate on the signs of human trafficking. Perpetrators often use commercial vehicles to transport their victims, making truckers a vital “force multiplier” in reporting suspicious activity. This week, KCPD and MoDOT will be meeting with commercial truckers to distribute information provided by the group Truckers Against Trafficking. Don’t miss this important story on how everyday heroes on the road are making a difference in the fight against human trafficking in Missouri and beyond.
