New Human Trafficking Division Set in Mississippi

A new sex trafficking division has been created by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

The State Department of Mississippi has been searching for additional funding to end state-wide human trafficking after a bill designed to combat human trafficking was passed during this year's legislative session.

The bill also includes specific training for law enforcement and additional protection for victims.

A federal grant of 8 hundred thousand dollars was given in support of MBI's investigating and solving human trafficking crimes.
