The hotel industry has long partnered alongside all levels of law enforcement to ensure when instances of trafficking are suspected, employees understand who they can contact to report suspicious activity. As part of this campaign, the industry will continue to build upon our strategic partnerships with law enforcement, including continuing to partner with the Department of Homeland Security Blue Campaign and Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Violent Crimes Unit. Additionally, we encourage members to directly coordinate with their local law enforcement’s human trafficking task force to foster an ongoing relationship.
For suspected instances of human trafficking, reach out to the following agencies for resources and assistance.
- To get help from the National Human Trafficking Hotline (NHTH), call 1-888-373-7888 or text HELP or INFO to BeFree (233733). The NHTH has identified and responded to more than 50,000 trafficking cases since 2007, including more than 10,000 in 2018 alone.
- To report suspicious activity, please call the Department of Homeland Security’s tip line at 866-347-2423 or contact your local FBI field office.
