KY's Tourism/Hospitality Industry Pledges to Fight Human Trafficking

Criminals who use Kentucky hotel rooms to carry out human trafficking crimes could soon be identified and reported by hotel staff thanks to a new training initiative unveiled today by Attorney General Andy Beshear and key partners. The training called, “See Something - Say Something - Save a Life!” is the state’s first coordinated effort that encourages Kentucky hotel owners to sign a pledge to have their front line staff complete an online human trafficking training. 
The training specifically warns of red flags of sex trafficking and provides front desk, housekeeping and hotel staff instructions on how to safely report the activity. KH&LA is a proud supporter of this initiative. Click here for more details.
