WMU-Cooley Law students learn about human trafficking
PASCO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE Corporal Alan Wilkett recently visited WMU-Cooley Law School Tampa Bay campus to speak with students about the effects of human trafficking in the Tampa Bay region. The discussion was hosted by WMU-Cooley’s Tampa Bay Help Save the Next Girl (HSNG) chapter and Wilkett talked about the signs, behaviors, and common indicators of trafficking, including the human trafficking triangle between the victim, trafficker, and buyer and certain populations that are especially vulnerable to being trafficked. “Victims can be males and females, people who are well educated and those without any formal education,” Wilkett told the students. “Trafficking does not discriminate.” Wilkett shared information with the students about how they can become involved with efforts to end human trafficking, and how to help victims and survivors of this crime.
