Investigating Human Trafficking at Large Scale Sporting Events

Large scale sporting events bring visitors from across the world together and create an atmosphere of excitement and camaraderie amongst fans. These events also bring threat actors from across the globe, looking to use the anonymity of the event for illicit activities. These sporting events have become a magnet for human traffickers, looking to exploit young and vulnerable victims. Earlier in 2022, a large scale event in a southern US state brought record numbers of fans. The event also attracted human traffickers looking to take advantage of some of the most vulnerable in the city and surrounding areas.
