Guidelines for Using Existing and Emerging Technologies to Identify and Mitigate Human Trafficking in Airports

U.S. Department of State statistics show that every year, out of more than 700,000 people who become subjects of human trafficking and cross international borders, 50,000 will enter the United States. ACRP Research Report 249: Developing an Airport Program to Address Human Trafficking: A Guide (to be published in spring 2023) will provide a guide and resources to help airports create and implement a comprehensive approach to address trafficking. One particular topic not covered in detail in that report is the use of existing and emerging technologies to aid in the timely detection and reporting of potential human trafficking activity. Airports would benefit from research on this subject to help them understand technologies that could aid in addressing trafficking activity, The objective of this research is to develop a primer and guide to help airport operators leverage existing and emerging technologies to aid in the timely detection and reporting of potential human trafficking activity on an airport campus (see Special Note A).
