West Texas is one of the five worst areas in the country for human trafficking, according to officials. Basin law enforcement teams up with Texas Center for the Missing to help combat the problem of human trafficking. But this app can teach and offer resources to anyone right in the palm of their hand.
The Texas DPS app has a whole section dedicated to just human trafficking. It shows legislation, threat assessment, compelling stories, exploitation of children among other sections. The app is available for both iPhone and Android users.
It also shows maps of target areas, as well as the closest resources to get help.
January is trafficking awareness month. Stay tuned to YourBasin for more stories on how people can educate themselves on the problem of human trafficking.
