HUMAN TRAFFICKING CASE DATA
Each hotline case is evaluated for evidence of potential human trafficking, and is categorized as High, Moderate, or No. Cases
categorized as “High” contain a high level of critical information and demonstrate key indicators relevant to identifying a human trafficking
situation. Cases categorized as “Moderate” reference situations that contain several indicators and red flags of potential trafficking situations,
or resemble common types of trafficking or trafficking scenarios but lack certain core details of force, fraud, or coercion. Cases categorized as
“No” do not reference specific instances of human trafficking and may instead involve requests for general information or technical assistance
on human trafficking.
