Human Trafficking

Indiana’s human trafficking laws were augmented prior to the 2012 Super Bowl amid concerns that the event would bring an influx of human trafficking events, including children.  The Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans (IPATH) is one of 42 task forces nationally that are funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

Prostitution sites promoted as massage parlors that were housing victims of human trafficking can occur anywhere across the state.  An example is here, which occurred in Richmond, Indiana (population approximately 35,000) in 2008.

For more information about the issue in Indiana, see the Indiana Office of the Attorney General Human Trafficking site, including general resources.  See also The Protected Innocence Challenge:  State Report Cards on the Legal Framework of Protection for the Nation’s Children (2011).
