This week, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody (R) announced a new human trafficking initiative. Most recently, the AG Moody addressed rising smash-and-grab robberies, but now the new initiative invites business owners to train staff, so they can report instances of human trafficking. Calling it an effort to have “partners in the community,” Moody was joined by several other political figures in unveiling the initiative.
Florida Lt. Governor Jeanette Nuñez (R) stood alongside Moody, and Nuñez assured the press that human trafficking is a “threat on the radar of Governor Ron DeSantis.”
Informing that Florida ranks third in the U.S. when it comes to reports directed to the national human trafficking hotline, Nuñez added that “that is a number that we are not content with.”
“I know you’re not content with it, and we are not going to stand idly,” she said.
