When I worked for Harris Health I trained nurses about Human Trafficking, since Ben Taub and LBJ hospitals are the most likely hospitals where traffickers will bring their victims. Human trafficking and sexual exploitation are very serious threat to our country and society.
We need to educate the public about this situation. We also need to inform the public that their children are being enticed into a life that ultimately is prostitution and drugs. Most of the victims are female. Some of the victims are male.
I recently attended an educational forum where an officer from Harris County Precinct 4 came to the meeting with an excellent presentation about the problem.
