Great piece of news that came out today!
Hotel chains such as Hilton, Hyatt and Wyndham have also partnered with ECPAT-USA (the leading anti-trafficking policy organization in the United States) in training staff to spot tell-tell signs of human trafficking.
Detective Sergeant Nunzio Tramontozzi who is the head of Toronto Police’s sex crimes and human-trafficking enforcement team, says that his team has dealt with over 1,000 cases of human trafficking over the past five years.
“90 per cent of them, if not more occur in or involve a hotel."
"Staff are told to keep an eye out for both potential traffickers and victims, for example, difficult patrons who might be unwilling to provide ID, or who are seen repeatedly escorting different men up to a room."
