BANGOR- Bangor airport officials are working with city councilors on adopting policies to help combat human trafficking.
Officials at the Bangor International Airport were asked by the DOT to take part in a new initiative called ‘Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking.’
The group consists of airports, airlines, trade groups and other transportation leader, and is already active in other states.
The goal is to help transportation officials better stop human trafficking.
“There’s a bunch of key focus areas. One of those, obviously is training and education, to train and educate your front line employees to be able to recognize human trafficking and also how to report it, what to do,” said airport director, Tony Caruso.
Membership in the initiative also includes some policy changes.
Bangor city councilors are expected to ratify the airport’s involvement in the program at the next city council meeting.
