LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A new hotline to report suspected sex and labor trafficking became available on Thursday, the Nebraska State Patrol said.

The patrol worked with Attorney General Doug Peterson to implement the new service.

The Nebraska Human Trafficking Hotline will direct information from tips to local investigators.

Tips can be made anonymously to 833-757-5665 at any time of the day and will go directly to the Nebraska Information Analysis Center.

“This new hotline is the result of a continuous partnership between NSP, the Nebraska Human Trafficking Task Force, and the Attorney General’s Office, seeking to disrupt the evil that is human trafficking,” superintendent of the patrol, Col. John Bolduc, said in a statement. “Public reports can be the key to saving victims, interrupting trafficking operations, and prosecuting offenders. We urge anyone who spots the signs of human trafficking to report it immediately.”

Individuals seeking victim services are still urged to call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 888-373-7888.

To learn more, including the signs of trafficking, you can go to the AG’s website.
