Presenter: Sergeant J.R. Greninger, Motor Carrier Safety



Activating Moving and In-Home Delivery Drivers in the Fight Against Human Trafficking
Adding to its industry-specific training film library, TAT has released a 23-minute training video for the more than 90,000 members of themoving industry and all other in-home delivery professionals. Thevideo provides an understanding of what human trafficking is, how it might intersect with everyday jobs and the specific red flags drivers can be alert to as they move in and out of homes across North America.
The training features the experience of survivor-leader Liz Williamson and her story of being trafficked by her mother out of their family home. Multiple times in the course of her exploitation, home movers and other service industry-related people came into her home and would have seen multiple red flags indicating human trafficking if they’d known what to look for. Chief Tommie J. Reese, Sr., law enforcement coordinator of the Office of the Alabama Attorney
General and a TAT Board member, shares information on what makes someone vulnerable to trafficking, additional red flags to look for, and, most importantly, the information law enforcement needs in order to activate investigation.
