LexisNexis and The Polaris Project fighting human trafficking together

LexisNexis and The Polaris Project have collaborated in the fight against human trafficking. This video is an extract of a segment on NewsChannel 8 in USA talking about this partnership.

LexisNexis® Risk & Information Analytics Group worked with Polaris Project to develop and implement a new web-based system that allows all employees of the national human trafficking hotline for the U.S. to access the same information in real time. The newly designed solution allows Polaris Project employees to service those in need by being able to field and respond to hotline calls more quickly and provide up-to-date, accurate information about local resources and service providers. Prior to this new national database, Polaris Project used a cumbersome system that contained information in disparate spreadsheets, making it difficult to access, maintain and share vital information.

Polaris Project operates the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC)‘s national toll-free hotline, which runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The hotline works to help improve the national response to protect victims of human trafficking in the U.S. by providing callers with a range of comprehensive services, including crisis response, urgent and non-urgent referrals, tip reporting, and comprehensive resources and training for the anti-trafficking field and those who wish to get involved. The NHTRC, funded with the support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other private funders, is part of Polaris Project’s Training, Technical Assistance, and Strategic Support Program (TTASP), which exists to help improve the systemic response to protecting victims of human trafficking in the United States.
