Pam Bondi Posts New Webpage to Raise Awareness on Human Trafficking

The office of Attorney General Pam Bondi has set up a webpage to raise awareness of human trafficking in advance of her plans to appear at a summit on the impact of trafficking in Florida.

“Human trafficking is an abhorrent crime that exploits women, men and children,” Bondi stated in a release. “We now have tougher criminal penalties and enhanced tools to help law enforcement, prosecutors and regulators stop these criminal enterprises.”

The summit, hosted by the Florida Children and Youth Cabinet and the Florida State University Center for the Advancement of Human Rights, is set for Sept. 24 at the Turnbull Center in Tallahassee.

The event will be broadcast via an interactive webcast.

In the 2012 legislative session, Bondi backed a bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott that increased penalties for trafficking in Florida that are consistent with federal human trafficking laws and gave law enforcement agencies the ability to request warrants to "intercept oral and electronic communications" related to human trafficking investigations.

It is about time she was doing her job instead of campaigning all over the place. She was not hired to campaign.
