Indiana hotels join forces to fight human trafficking

Indiana hotels are joining the nation’s efforts in putting an end to human trafficking.

Chip Rodgers, President of the American Hotel and Lodging Association, says hotel staff are increasing awareness to spot signs of trouble.

Such as when you see people together of dramatically different ages that are not related to each other checking in, or when you have an excessive number of guests coming in and out of one guest room.

The National Human Trafficking Hotline says that in Indiana last year, there were over 140 cases of human trafficking reported and nearly 50 calls from victims and survivors.
