Tennessee Tops for Combating Human Trafficking
Thursday November 16, 2017

Shared Hope International has ranked Tennessee number one in the country for fighting human trafficking. That's according to the TBI.

The report pointed out one flaw. It said Tennessee imposes substantial penalties for sex trafficking and provides tools for law enforcement to investigate effectively, but victims may be deterred from pursuing justice due to a lack of trial protections and potential bars to victims' compensation.

Gwyn said his office will not rest but will keep working until that score is 100%.
