Governor Andy Beshear held a briefing this morning to announce a successful human trafficking operation. On August 26th, Kentucky joined a multi-state operation, Operation United Front, that resulted in 21 rescued victims, including two minors.
Kentucky conducted four trafficking operations simultaneously in Bowling Green, Elizabethtown, McCracken County and Northern Kentucky. The operation was led by Kentucky State Police.
Governor Beshear also reminds Kentuckians of the legal duty to report suspicions of children involved in human trafficking. Concerns about possible human trafficking should be reported to 1-888-373-7888.
