MoDOT Raising Awareness on Human Trafficking Statewide

With the U.S. Department of Transportation putting together more initiatives to combat human trafficking, MoDOT is also doing its part.

‘Put the Brakes on Human Trafficking’ was an initiative that began in 2018 to put a stop to the growing problem nationwide, but has since seen many changes and new plans.

This week, Springfield’s MoDOT chapter announced their plans to train employees this fall to become better prepared to be aware of the potential signs of a trafficking situation.

The plan is to have employees trained to a comfortable level before National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, which is in January.
