The Pasco County Clerk and Comptroller’s Office is joining other Clerk’s offices across the state of Florida to spread awareness about human trafficking. The Florida Attorney General’s Office reports human trafficking cases have been reported throughout the United States. In fact, Florida ranks 3rd in the number of calls into the national Human Trafficking Hotline.
There are a number of misconceptions when it comes to human trafficking. Some believe it is usually linked to a violent crime. According to data from the AG’s office, most traffickers use psychological means such as tricking, defrauding, manipulating, or threatening victims into providing commercial sex or exploitive behavior.
