Fragmented Statistics Lead To Unclear Picture Of Human Trafficking In Florida
By Ryan Benk

Hollywood theatrics aside, human trafficking is a dramatic crime. And according the Syracuse research firm Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, prosecutions of trafficking cases have seen an equally dramatic increase in recent years – about fourfold. But, TRAC’s Co-Director David Burnham explained those numbers stem from a very specific type of human trafficking. “The study we put up looked at prosecutions under a law specifically passed by Congress to deal with trafficking. And under that law the federal government, the prosecutions by the federal government, have gone up very sharply,” Burnham said.
