How to Report
Make notes of everything you are seeing and/or hearing. Be as descriptive as possible.
If you can DISCREETLY take a photo, do so. Do not do this if you will be seen. Keep yourself safe!
Do NOT approach the scene. This is not only for your safety, but for the safety of the victims. Traffickers will often abuse their victims more if they feel they are attracting attention.
Call the national or state hotline and report the information you have. You can remain anonymous if you desire. The dispatcher will ask you a lot of questions regarding the incident. It is okay to say, "I don't know the answer to that question."
Note: Calling any of the hotlines provided is not the same as calling 911. The Human Trafficking Hotlines are reporting agencies who will contact appropriate law enforcement regarding tips they receive. If in immediate danger, always call 911.
The information you provide will be reviewed by the Trafficking Hotline. All reports are confidential and you may remain anonymous.
