How to report child exploitation
If you see a young person on the street soliciting sex, do not approach the child. Go to a safe place where you can see the child as their exploiter may be watching them. Then call 911 and tell them that you know the child is a minor and that you believe they are being “commercially sexually exploited”. Provide details: time, exact location, descriptions of the child and suspected exploiters and vehicle picking up the child.
You can also report suspected self-selling or trafficking to your school principal, nurse, counselor or police.
Report suspicious activity. You are not snitching. You may be saving someone’s life.
