Battling Human Trafficking

For three years now, Ohio law enforcement agencies have teamed up to conduct human trafficking stings. But this year’s effort turned out to be the largest in state history.

State Attorney General Dave Yost said 51 potential human trafficking victims were helped, and 161 men were arrested. Importantly, Yost said this sting was the first conducted since the penalty for buying sex has been more severe than selling sex.

Ohioans have had a lot on their minds lately, and the attention being paid to human trafficking in our state has waned over the last year-and-a-half or so . But Yost’s announcement reminds us the law enforcement community has not forgotten, and in fact is working even harder to help the victims and put a stop to human trafficking.
