(HURON COUNTY, ON) - The Huron Youth Justice Committee is offering three community awareness sessions this month on Human Trafficking to help community members gain a better understanding of what Human Trafficking is and how we can respond as a community to help support victims and families.
Members from Victim Services Huron County, Huron County Health Unit, Rural Response for Healthy Children and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have planned an informative evening of presentations that will help audience members better understand this emerging issue and deplorable crime.
Presentations are scheduled for the following dates and locations:
October 10, 2018 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. at F.E. Madill Secondary School
October 17, 2018 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. at South Huron Secondary School
October 24, 2018 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. at Goderich District Collegiate Institute
RSVPs are appreciated to Jen Doak at Jennifer.Doak@start.ca or 519-524-6702
These presentations are open to any interested community member with a special focus geared toward families and caregivers. The Huron Youth Justice Committee along with the OPP is encouraging the public to learn the indicators of human trafficking.
Across Ontario, more and more victims are being recruited from small towns and lured with the promise of love and a "better life." Human trafficking involves the recruitment, transportation or harbouring of persons for the purposes of exploitation, typically in the sex industry or for forced labour. The indicators of human trafficking are not always obvious. Although the presence of one indicator does not necessarily identify human trafficking, a variety of indicators may point to the fact that an individual is being trafficked and needs help.
Any person with information regarding possible instances of human trafficking should immediately contact any OPP Detachment or their nearest police authority.
Should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
