University of Cincinnati to study trafficking of children

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The University of Cincinnati will collaborate with a task force and a state agency to assess the extent of human trafficking of children in Ohio.

The executive director of the Office of Criminal Justice Services says the results of the study will help authorities respond to trafficking.

A news release by the Justice Services office says the $100,000 federal grant to the university of Cincinnati is intended to help fill "knowledge gaps" about the prevalence of human trafficking of children and young people ages 18 to 21 in foster care..

A criminal justice professor at the university says her team will be collecting information from state agencies, news reports and state-level justice system data housed at the University of Cincinnati's Corrections Institute.
