State of Louisiana Archives: on Crime


Bobby Jindal: Crack down on the horrific crime of human sex trafficking

We're committed to working with legislators to continue to crack down on the horrific crime of human trafficking. Each year, hundreds of thousands of women and children around the world become victims of a global sex trade. Victims are forced to sell these services by means of physical abuse, threats, lies, manipulation, and false promises for things like education or a place to stay.

This isn't a crime that is just happening in some faraway place. As we've seen from investigations by Louisiana State Police recently, it's happening here in Baton Rouge and across our state.

That's why we'll propose a legislative package to prosecute criminals to the fullest extent of the law, and protect the vulnerable and often forgotten victims of these terrible crimes.
