How to spot warning signs of human trafficking is in the spotlight for a webinar next month sponsored by the federal credit union regulator, the agency said Monday.
In a release, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) said the Jan. 7 seminar will provide an overview of human trafficking and its impact on communities, law enforcement’s efforts to combat it, and potential red flags in credit unions. Attendees will also learn how to report concerns about human trafficking to the proper authorities, the agency said.
The webinar, NCUA said, is sponsored jointly with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) homeland security investigations – along with a non-profit organization called “The Knoble,” which the agency says works to combat human trafficking, child exploitation, financial crime, and elder financial abuse. It gets underway at 2 p.m. and will run for 90 minutes. There is no charge for attending, although advance registration is required.
