Report a Crime
For immediate response to a potential trafficking case call CAST's hotline:
It’s impossible for law enforcement officials to be aware of every single trafficking and slavery case in their area without support and tips from the community. It’s up to you to take action when you suspect someone is being held against their will. If you suspect a case of slavery, here are some of the questions CAST will ask if you call us to report a suspected case of slavery:
- What is your name and phone number?
- Can you directly contact the victim?
- Do you suspect the victim is being abused?
- Does the victim want to leave his/her situation?
- What language does the victim speak?
- What type of work does the victim do?
- At what address is the victim being held?
- Who are the victim's employers?
- What makes you think this person is a victim of trafficking?
