b. We are working to make the TAT website link and additional materials about the organization’s cause accessible on tablet devices used by our field sales group so they can easily forward this information to others.
- Partner with law enforcement to facilitate the investigation of human trafficking.
a. BCS will share the TAT organization’s messaging with our Company Owned Operations (COO stores) and will collaborate with truck stops in our distribution network on ways to publicize this important information.
- Marshal the resources of the trucking industry to combat this crime.
a. Through the sharing of facts we can help spread the TAT message and educate our employees and customers on how to spot trafficking and what to do when they suspect it is happening.
b. The National Human Trafficking Resource Center phone number (1-888-3737-888) will be shared with every employee and customer in our efforts to encourage more people to report what they see.
