The North County Transit District Board of Directors approved a proclamation declaring January 2024 as Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

There are estimated to be more than 27.6 million people – adults and children – subjected to human trafficking around the world, including the United States​. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has ranked San Diego as one of as one of the 13 regions with the highest incidents of human trafficking in the country.

Human trafficking can happen in any community and victims can be any age, race, gender, or nationality. Language barriers, fear of their traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement frequently keep victims from seeking help, making human trafficking a hidden crime.​

To put an end to this atrocity, the U.S. Department of Transportation established an initiative called Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking. NCTD has signed a pledge, with other industry leaders, committing to educate employees on how to recognize and report signs of human trafficking, and raise public awareness among the traveling public.

By uniting efforts across the transportation sector, it is expected greater progress will be reached in the elimination of human trafficking.

Recognizing Signs of Human Trafficking:

  • Living with employer.
  • Poor living conditions.
  • Multiple people in cramped space.
  • Inability to speak to individual alone.
  • Answers appear to be scripted and rehearsed.
  • Employer is holding identity documents.
  • Signs of physical abuse.
  • Submissive or fearful.
