Bondi to Announce Anti-Human Trafficking Effort

By  | 

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Attorney General Pam Bondi will announce an anti-human trafficking initiative in Tampa.

Bondi is scheduled to speak during a late morning news conference at the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office on Friday.

According to the state Department of Children and Families, Florida is one of the most popular destinations for human traffickers in the U.S. and sex trafficking of young victims is among the most underreported offenses.

The agency started a statewide task force in 2009 because the majority of sex trafficking victims are foster youth.
