  TAT in Action
 On October 6, 2018, after watching a couple teenage girls “work the lot” at a truck stop, a husband
and wife driving team sent staff at Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) a photo of the car that had brought the girls, which was parked out by the trucks. Along with the photo, they sent a short video of the girls standing outside a truck. TAT staff notified law enforcement at the Attorney General’s Office in the state where the truck stop was located, as well as the appropriate personnel in the corporate office of the truck stop. Corporate office personnel notified Security and the management of the truck stop in question, who sprang into action. A sweep of the lot located the car in the photo. Security got the license plate number, which then yielded the owner’s name and home address. He had four females with him at the lot. When Security attempted to speak with the male driver, he yelled for his girls, who came running, and the car sped out of the lot. Corporate office personnel followed up with the law enforcement in the city, turning over all information gathered to city police.
