TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
According to FBI reports, Toledo is the fourth worst city in the United States when it comes to human trafficking. Ohio has been ranked fifth among the 50 states for the crime.
In an effort to stop abductions and trafficking, the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority kicked off a "standing strong against human trafficking" campaign Monday, May 5.
Busses will feature onboard signs to educate riders on human trafficking. Drivers will be trained on how to recognize signs of human trafficking. TARTA also says that its busses will serve as a safe haven for anyone looking to escape human trafficking.
"There's no way we can be everywhere as a law enforcement organization. We need people out there that communicate with communities, that can be our eyes and ears in the community," said Agent David Dustin, FBI.
It is a big deal for Toledo and TARTA to jump on board and basically assist the FBI, police, and sheriff's office with the human rights issue.
"This is huge that everyone's coming together now because it wasn't happening in 1972. It was law enforcement basically responding for stopping this activity but look what we have today," said Sheriff John Tharp.
