The National Human Trafficking Hotline knows that hotels and motels are frequently utilized by traffickers to facilitate forced commercial sex or forced work. In many cases, hotel and motel owners may not be aware of how their businesses are being used to perpetuate these crimes. In an effort to shed light on trafficking in hotels and motels, the National Human Trafficking Hotline is providing the following information which can help hotel and motel staff and owners, community members, service providers, law enforcement, and others better understand how human trafficking is being conducted in these spaces. This is not a comprehensive report on the scale or scope of human trafficking occurring in hotels and motels. It represents only calls and cases made to the National Hotline from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2016.
