Seeing a victim-Fifteen years ago, Grant Snyder thought of prostitution the way many older beat cops did: It was a choice. The women were just drug addicts. They should get real jobs. Now a sergeant with the Minneapolis Police Department, Snyder has trained thousands of officers, including hundreds in western North Dakota, on how trafficking can look. But after a few interactions with victims, like when he found a year-old girl, who looked even younger, being prostituted out of a crack house, his views and his policing changed.
Cops may already have opinions about prostitution and the women in that life, and past interactions with law enforcement can make a woman wary of them, too. Snyder urges patience for cops handling trafficking cases, with victims who may feel ashamed or who may not yet accept that they have been exploited. Today, at trainings, sometimes after an overnight shift or on their day off, police officers are looking back and realizing they have seen sex trafficking.
Learning the complex art of detecting and interacting with a sex trafficking victim is even harder in western North Dakota, where turnover and general busyness plague departments big and small. Department administrators fear that turnover will be even greater after young, new hires, often from Minnesota or other states, gain experience and find jobs closer to home as the economy recovers.

Lazenko said 4her North Dakota plans to do outreach at area truckstops to equip truckers and business owners to identify victims and how to respond.
Everyday interactions-Private businesses also have implemented training to help employees detect victims. Some hotels and motels, too, mandate training for employees. From the corporate cafeteria at the Carlson Center outside Minneapolis, Brenda Schultz explained how different employees would see trafficking differently. On the front end at reception, a victim may not make eye contact, the man may speak for her and the pair might not have luggage, Schultz said.
Seeing the s in a patient-A majority of more than sex trafficking victims surveyed came into contact with health care professionals during their victimization, according to a study.

Training sessions were held in Williston and New Town, N. In Williston, Mercy Medical Center CEO Matt Grimshaw said the hospital has not confirmed any of its patients were victims of human trafficking, but hospital officials felt it was important to receive the training on identifying victims.
Mark Bekkedahl, director of mission at Mercy Medical Center, said some of the red flags -- like a patient not knowing her address -- would not necessarily indicate trafficking in Williston, where a high percentage of the population is transient. About half of states require s bearing the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline be posted in certain places, according to Polaris, a national anti-trafficking organization that runs the hotline. In Texas, for example, bars must post it. Officers, meanwhile, are recording any incidents so if a case is being built down the road, investigators can look at history and see any other interactions with a trafficker or victim, be it a traffic stop or an arrest.
