Human trafficking is a global problem to which no community is immune; however, it is quite complex, caused by many factors in our society, and often hidden in plain sight. It has become easier to acquire persons for trafficking with the development of Internet technology, the mobile phone and social media.
Traffickers are drawn to utilize hotels as “anonymous places” in which to conduct business: renting rooms for their trafficked victims, creating subtle advertisements of their offerings in sexual classified ads and selling victims out of hotels, as well as having victims meet buyers in nearby hotels to perform the purchased services. The ease of changing venues to keep operation anonymous combined with the desire of buyers to remain nondescript is why hotels remain a top choice for both traffickers and buyers to engage in this illegal exchange.
