BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Efforts that fight human trafficking continue to be the focus of Louisiana State Police.
"This is a priority for us," said Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of LSP. "Seven years ago, if you look back, we probably worked maybe two or three cases involving human trafficking. Now [we're] well over 550 in seven years."
Law enforcement officers gathered at state police headquarters in Baton Rouge to learn about human trafficking in a training session.
It involved a partnership between several law enforcement agencies.
Attendees were taught what to look for on the road and who to call when they spot a potential problem.
