Convenience Store Group Joins State Agencies in Human Trafficking Fight

Store workers need to recognize the warning signs of human trafficking

The state of Wisconsin has a new set of partners in its fight against human trafficking.

This week, the state’s attorney general, Josh Kaul, along with the Wisconsin State Patrol and the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, announced a plan to train convenience store workers to recognize warning signs of human trafficking, with the help of the Wisconsin Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association. The new collaboration comes during National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

“By identifying suspicious activity and reporting it to law enforcement, convenience store and gas station employees can help law enforcement fight human trafficking,” Kaul said in a news release. “This partnership will help more people know the signs of human trafficking and what to do when they see those signs.”
