OBSERVE: Identify individual and environmental indicators of trafficking

One step in the public health model is identifying what factors protect people or put them at risk of violence. As you learned in the SOAR training, some populations are more at risk of trafficking. To prevent and identify cases of human trafficking, it’s important to recognize the verbal and nonverbal signs.

There are a variety of "red flags" that can be indicators of either labor or sex trafficking. Each person and situation is unique and the indicators of trafficking will vary, but there are some common indicators of human trafficking. The examples shown here are not a definitive list, nor will every individual present the same red flags.
