Busing on the Lookout (BOTL)
When building an army to fight a crime like human trafficking, the bus industry has a key role to fill. Through their sheer numbers, extensive travels, and the nature of their jobs, members of the bus industry—commercial and school—are uniquely positioned to provide an extra set of eyes and ears for law enforcement in recovering victims and arresting traffickers.
- "Transit on the Lookout to Combat Human Trafficking" Our goal with this is to support transit managers who are looking to establish anti-human trafficking initiatives. The toolkit summarizes the issue and where there may be intersections between transit and human trafficking, shares case studies, outlines best practices, and provides step-by-step guidance/options for transit agencies on implementing the BOTL training.
