Nebraska State Patrol receives national award from Truckers Against Trafficking
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Nebraska State Patrol has been given the 2022 Truckers Against Trafficking Champion Award.
Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is an organization that helps fight against human trafficking across the world.
They have brought together law enforcement, transportation, and energy partners to help fight against human trafficking, NSP says.
TAT Deputy Director Kylla Lanier awarded NSP at a press conference on Friday.
“We wanted to honor a law enforcement partner who took on the TAT mission, made it their own, and innovated in ways we had not seen done before,” Lanier said, “When NSP first decided to partner with Truckers Against Trafficking, you guys did not dip your toe in the water. You went all-in from the very beginning.”
The Nebraska State Patrol Carrier Enforcement Division has been partnered with TAT for several years.
They have worked together on educational programs, public awareness campaigns, and investigational operations.
“This partnership, with the trucking industry and specifically Truckers Against Trafficking, is there to build awareness, to provide intervention, and to rescue victims of human trafficking,” said Col. John Bolduc, superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We are extremely proud of our Carrier Enforcement Division troopers, investigators, and support staff for their relentless work and the valuable partnerships they’ve developed in this important mission.”
