Human Trafficking In The Charlotte Area
One dubious distinction for Charlotte is that we continue to be on the frontlines of human trafficking. Our location at the nexus of two interstates has set us up perfectly for this heinous crime. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Charlotte has a task force focused on trafficking and CMPD is joining in to help in the effort to reduce and stop what is essentially human slavery.
