San Diego Public Library Staff Trained to Identify Sex Trafficking Victim
From NBC San Diego:
More than 800 staff members at all of San Diego’s 36 library locations recently received training on how to spot sex trafficking victims, how to start a conversation with them, and ultimately how to steer them to the appropriate resources for help.
“We actually had a situation where we had a teen that was in one of our study rooms and was asleep, and one of the staff approached her, and after a lot of conversation found out that she was a victim of sex trafficking,” said Misty Jones, San Diego Library director.
