Atlanta Cracks Down on Super Bowl Sex Trafficking


superbowlThe week preceding the Super Bowl in Atlanta, the police department was given special training to spot potential victims of sex trafficking, hotel workers and employees in the airline business refreshed their training on how to recognize victims. Hotels close to the event slipped bars of soap into the bathrooms with the sex trafficking hotline carved into them. This was the perfect storm. Atlanta, a metropolitan city known for being a hub of sex trafficking was going to host the sporting event that is known for being a major hotbed, the Super Bowl.

The Atlanta Police Department, FBI, and Homeland Security worked together and were able to make 40 arrests in conjunction with several trafficking rings. Among those charged with trafficking were suspected pimps and prostitutes.

As of January 30, only four victims of the trafficking rings have been rescued.
