There is a concern that people think that human trafficking only takes place outside of the United States. However, this crime happens right in the United States. Some people may be unaware of what human trafficking really is and all the other crimes that are generally associated with human trafficking. There also may be victims that want to seek help but really do not know :from whom to seek help from. Everyone needs to be able to identify a victim that may be involved in human trafficking. The victim may not be willing to step forward at that time but there are trained professionals that can help the victim come forth for help. Human trafficking is a huge industry that takes place domestically and internationally. There are certain crimes that are linked directly to human trafficking that community members should be educated on. This study was performed to enhance the knowledge of the severity of this crime and to provide education of what this crime involves.
