Missouri Stop Human Trafficking Poster Available Through Department of Public Safety

The passage of House Bill 1246 in the 2018 legislative session charged the Missouri Department of Public Safety (DPS) to create posters displaying the national human trafficking website and hotline. The timeline for the posters was to have them created by January 1, 2019 and on display by March 1, 2019. DPS has a grant to print copies of the posters, and posters are available by pick-up and mail delivery. Anyone can print a copy of the poster directly from the DPS website. Posters present information and resources in both English and Spanish.
