Nowadays human traffickers have been getting more sophisticated, but there is a way you and I can help law enforcement, using your phone and TraffickCam app or your computers cam and a browser.
Hoy en día los traficantes de personas se están volviendo más sofisticados, pero hay una manera en la que tú y yo podemos ayudar a las fuerzas del orden, usando tu teléfono y la aplicación TraffickCam o la cámara de tus computadoras y un navegador.
 

According to the U.S. State Department, every year between 600,000 and 800,000 people are trafficked across the country’s borders, half of them are children and 8 out of 10 are female. They are a fraction of the estimated 21 million people who have been trafficked around the world according the UNICEF, and demand for slavery and cheap labor has been steadily increasing.

Statistics show that human trafficking has become one of the fastest growing crimes and it has also shown the majority of the crimes take place in hotel rooms.

Traffickers regularly post photographs of their victims posed in hotel rooms for online advertisements. These photographs are evidence that can be used to find and prosecute the perpetrators of these crimes. In order to use these photos, however, investigators must be able to determine where the photos were taken.

TraffickCam enables you to help combat sex trafficking by uploading photos of the hotel rooms you stay in when you travel. The purpose of TraffickCam is to create a database of hotel room images that an investigator can efficiently search, in order to find other images that were taken in the same location as an image that is part of an investigation.

This is how it works, before you leave your hotel room, you snap 4 pictures of the hotel room, when submitting, you must include the name of the hotel and the room number, this information is added to the database and used for comparison with traffickers photographs.

Según el Departamento de Estado de los Estados Unidos, cada año entre 600.000 y 800.000 personas son traficadas a través de las fronteras del país, la mitad son niños y 8 de cada 10 son mujeres. Son una fracción de los 21 millones de personas que han sido víctimas de trata en todo el mundo de acuerdo con el UNICEF, y la demanda de esclavitud y mano de obra barata ha ido aumentando constantemente.

Las estadísticas muestran que la trata de personas se ha convertido en uno de los delitos de más rápido crecimiento y también ha demostrado que la mayoría de los crímenes se producen en las habitaciones de hotel.

Los traficantes regularmente publican fotografías de sus víctimas en las habitaciones de hotel para los anuncios en línea. Estas fotografías son evidencia que puede usarse para encontrar y enjuiciar a los autores de estos crímenes. Sin embargo, para usar estas fotos, los investigadores deben ser capaces de determinar dónde se tomaron las fotos.

TraffickCam le permite ayudar a combatir el tráfico sexual subiendo fotos de las habitaciones de hotel en las que permanece cuando viaja. El propósito de TraffickCam es crear una base de datos de imágenes de habitación de hotel que un investigador pueda buscar eficientemente, para encontrar otras imágenes que fueron tomadas en el mismo lugar que una imagen que es parte de una investigación.

Así es como funciona, antes de salir de su habitación de hotel, se rompen 4 fotos de la habitación de hotel, al presentar, debe incluir el nombre del hotel y el número de habitación, esta información se añade a la base de datos y se utiliza para la comparación con Fotografías de traficantes.
