Detective Constable Nadine Clarke, Halton Crime Stoppers' Police Coordinator commented on human trafficking in Halton Region. "When people think of crime in our community human trafficking generally isn't at the top of the list. But, the unfortunate reality is that, human trafficking is the second largest criminal activity in the world and it does exist in Halton Region. It remains a largely hidden crime with very few obvious signs of the activity, leaving victims with few options for escape. The Halton Regional Police Service is proud to partner with Halton Crime Stoppers and Courage for Freedom to present this information session focused on key community partners and what signs to watch for", Clarke said.
