Attorney General Austin Knudsen today launched a new statewide public service announcement to educate Montanans on the issue of human trafficking and how to report it when they suspect they see it.
Featuring Montana Department of Justice officials who are active in the fight against human trafficking, the 30-second spot provides information to Montanans on what to look for and where to report suspected human trafficking. It will run through August 10 on broadcast and cable television across Montana.
“One of my top priorities as attorney general is ending human trafficking in Montana,” Attorney General Knudsen said. “At the Montana Department of Justice, we’re increasing our investigations and committed to holding human traffickers accountable. Please, join us. Educate yourself on the signs of human trafficking and report suspected human trafficking to 1-833-406-STOP.”
Attorney General Knudsen is joined in the spot by Selene Koepke, Attorney General’s Office prosecutor, Bryan Lockerby, Division of Criminal Investigation administrator, and Steve Lavin, Montana Highway Patrol colonel.
