This week, I was proud to have the opportunity to attend and speak at the Department of Juvenile Justice’s Human Trafficking Summit. At DBPR, we understand that while visiting businesses across the state, it is crucial to look for indicators of illegal activity such as human trafficking as well as educate our licensees on the resources that are available to them.
To help combat this growing epidemic, DBPR employees have received training from various experts in the field that educate employees on a general overview of the issues and more. Additionally, DBPR provides local and national human trafficking contact information to inspectors, investigators and consumers, including the Florida Abuse Hotline and the Department of Economic Opportunity Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Exploitation Hotline so they may report any suspected incidences of human trafficking.
Human trafficking is something we do not take lightly at DBPR. As an agency, we continue to develop ways to raise awareness on how to identify human trafficking and what to do if human trafficking is suspected. We are glad we can assist in the efforts to educate both our employees and Floridians so we may help keep every individual safe!
