GPD investigators speak at Daybreak Rotary

Griffin Police Department Investigators Ashley Neath and Laurie Littlejohn presented a program on human trafficking to members of the Griffin Daybreak Rotary Club. They stressed the importance of parents and guardians keeping an eye on their children’s social media habits and for anyone seeing suspicious activity to report it to the authorities. Neath said that Atlanta is one of 14 cities in the United States identified as a hub for human trafficking because of the airport, high tourism, the interstate highways that go through the state, and its dense population. Atlanta ranks as having the highest number of exotic dance clubs per capita. Human trafficking is the second-largest criminal activity and education is important because human trafficking has lasting effects on the victims who get drawn in with the promise of money, food and hope for something better.
