John Wayne Airport engaged Vanguard University’s Global Center for Women and Justice to provide comprehensive awareness and action training on human trafficking to Airport tenants and employees.
As major transportation hubs, airports are well-positioned to recognize human trafficking throughout their facilities. Learning critical indicators of human trafficking, raising awareness of the crime, and knowing how to report suspected trafficking incidents are just some ways John Wayne Airport is training staff to play a critical role in ending this crime.
“It is essential that we provide the tools and training for our employees to stay alert and maintain awareness for potential instances of criminality throughout the Airport,” said Barry Rondinella, Airport Director. “Armed with this information, they will know how to respond when they suspect human trafficking.”
