TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced a partnership with the Tampa International Airport on Friday to bring awareness to human trafficking.
Bondi announced the website. YouCanStopHT.com, which aims to educate the public on signs of human trafficking and provides phone numbers of contacts to report suspected human trafficking.
Signage with the link to the website will be present at TIA.
“Other airports throughout the country will hopefully take out lead,” Bondi said.
Bondi commented on the Uber driver in Sacramento who recognized the signs of human trafficking and saved a life.
Bondi was joined by Representative Ross Spano and Chief Paul Sireci, Director of Public Safety and Security for the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority.
