Human trafficking awareness

commercial license renewal

The Virginia DMV concluded its participation in the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance Human Trafficking Awareness this week.

The DMV employees are on the front lines at weigh stations, customer service centers and in the field.

They have received training on how to identify human trafficking.

Just a few signs to be aware of:

  • A friend, family member, co-worker, or student is newly showered with gifts or money or otherwise becomes involved in an overwhelming, fast-moving, and asymmetric romantic relationship.
  • Is a frequent runaway
  • Seems to be getting particularly close with someone they only know online.
