CRIME OF THE WEEK

PROFILE WAS AIRED WEEK OF JULY 7- JULY 13, 2017

CRIME STOPPERS would like to remind the citizens of Durham Region of the increased number of incidents related to Human Trafficking. Often referred to as sex slavery, there are numerous victims who are being forced into situations because of threats of violence, physical and psychological intimidation. Young women, typically 12-18 years old, are being exploited in the sex trade at the hands of predators. Victims are isolated from their families and friends and regularly moved from one hotel to the next to avoid detection. If you are staying in a hotel or motel near major thoroughfares, be aware of some of the warning signs of Human Trafficking:

  • A female who appears fearful of or under the control of another person
  • Constant flow of traffic to or from their hotel room
  • Travelling with minimal luggage or inappropriate belongings
  • A younger female travelling with an older male companion

If you or someone you know has been a victim of Human Trafficking, please call police or Crime Stoppers.

CRIME STOPPERS will pay up to $2000 cash for ANY information that leads to an arrest in this or ANY criminal matter.  Callers never need to give their name or testify in court and we do NOT use call display. Remember: CRIME doesn’t pay but Crime Stoppers does.
