Andy Beshear on Families & Children

 

 


Use A.G. office to rescue victims of human trafficking

As attorney general since 2016, I have used every tool available [in] fighting human trafficking. I still remember the first human-trafficking victim we rescued was three years ago, the Wednesday before Derby. She was just 16 years old. And because a hotel worker made a simple phone call, we were able to make the save and get her the resources she needed for healing.

Prosecute 31 active human trafficking cases in Kentucky

Andy Beshear conducted year-end interviews, speaking about several topics and issues that the state currently faces, including human trafficking in the state of Kentucky.

Beshear says there are currently 31 active human trafficking cases in the state. He noted that the AG's office has helped provide training and services to law enforcement and prosecutors to help crack down on the issue.

"Just this year, in the first 11 months, we had more arrests of human traffickers, we had more saves of victims than any two or three year period in our commonwealth's history," Beshear noted. "Even better, we now have more services for those survivors, for those victims."
