Kerr County Sherriff Department Captain Carl Arrendondo provided the program on Human Trafficking at the meeting last Wednesday. According to the State Attorney General's website, there are approximately 79,000 victims of trafficking at any given time in Texas. There are several categories of this crime including adult sex trafficking (those forced into prostitution), children under the age of 18 sex trafficking, and both adult and children labor trafficking. 
 
Those who are most susceptible include victims of abuse, runaways, kids in foster care and those with a juvenile record. The traffickers themselves can come from various backgrounds including being an intimate partner of a victim, bosses, and owners or strip clubs and massage parlors. Trafficking is described as modern day slavery. The most important thing citizens can do to help is to report suspicious activity- if you see something, say something.
