Human trafficking reported in tourist hubs : Baraboo News Republic

Source: Baraboo News Republic

WISCONSIN DELLS | A human trafficking assessment found that, while difficult to obtain proper statistics, human trafficking is a real problem in Wisconsin, especially near tourist hubs.
The state Department of Justice released the results of a survey asking law enforcement agencies about human trafficking in each municipality. Human trafficking does exist in Wisconsin and is most reported in areas that are highly populated or have a significant tourist or visitor population, the report said. A lack of adequate services for victims of human trafficking exists throughout the state including housing, health care and advocacy.
