Nebraska Task Force Takes Aim At Human Trafficking

With the completion of a training manual, an 18-member task force has taken a big step toward determining the nature and extent of human trafficking in Nebraska.

According to a report the task force delivered the manual and a report to the state Legislature last week.

The report says human trafficking occurs primarily in prostitution, pornography, farming and the drug trade. Victims include foreigners but also U.S. citizens, including runaway teens whom traffickers scoop up off the streets.

Task force member Al Riskowski says the size and nature of Nebraska's problem isn't clear. He says the task force will define the problem and then employ the training manual to prepare law enforcement personnel and others to help find the traffickers who are preying on people.
