Human Trafficking - PDF
DBPR Form HR 5022-104, provides useful information on identification and reporting of human trafficking. Public lodgings, by their very nature, provide excellent cover to human trafficking operations. Because of this, it is extremely important that hotel and motel staff members are educated on the signs of such activity so it can be reported in the proper manner.
