How to Report Trafficking Activity in the United States

"If You Suspect Trafficking or Need to Ask For Help
Human traffickers are sometimes caught based on a tip from a concerned citizen or neighbor. If you suspect a situation of human trafficking, or if you need help, call one of the following toll-free hotlines:

Department of Justice: 1-888-428-7581

Department of Health and Human Services: 1-888-373-7888"

Comments

This reference to national government offices makes me curious whether any international governing or policing bodies currently maintain transnational jurisdiction in cases of suspected human trafficking activity? Or is action and intervention always dependent on a coordinated effort between national and local authorities?
