trafficking in the Hospitality Industry

Due to the anonymous, risk-free nature of the hospitality industry, children across the globe are exploited in hotels—ranging from budget properties to luxury resorts. Hotel associates are uniquely situated to identify and report suspicious activity. From check-in to check-out there are a number of indicators victims and traffickers exhibit during the time they are on a hotel property. With proper training, a front desk agent or a housekeeper can notice that something is not right and respond.
