McGeorge Law Review

Combating Human Trafficking by Enhancing Awareness Through Public Postings

S. Dyle — 2013

“[R]equiring certain businesses and establishments to conspicuously post a human trafficking notice may raise awareness and educate individuals on the warning signs of human trafficking. These notices will bring awareness to the general public and, in turn, that awareness will lead to more tips to law enforcement. A public posting, informing both victims and the general public that human trafficking is a crime, victims have rights, and there are non-governmental organizations willing to assist victims, is a significant step in combating human trafficking.”
