Abstract

The statistics on human trafficking are both staggering and, due to its secret nature, highly unreliable. Human sex trafficking tends to occur behind closed doors with the use of legitimate business fronts, making it very difficult to account for all the victims. Crime experts predict that over the course of the next ten years, the number of human trafficking instances will surpass both arms and drug trafficking, turning human trafficking into an estimated 9.5 billion dollar industry.

This presentation will educate on the topic of safety and awareness in the use of social media, cell technology and digital forensics. There will be an emphasis on today’s generation and how we can help protect our children and adolescents from this horrific crime. The presenter will point out ways to help educate and raise awareness regarding the signs of sex trafficking within our schools, churches, and communities.
