A California law requires certain businesses, including motels, truck stops and massage parlors, to display posters about human trafficking. But on a recent compliance check in Salinas, police found out very few are following this law.

The investigation continues into an officer-involved shooting last month that left a Salinas woman dead. Police were called because she allegedly threatened to kill someone.

Last year, 18 victims of human trafficking called a hotline at the Monterey County Rape Crisis center looking for help. The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office says this represents just a fraction of the problem in the county. So they’re trying out a new way to find these victims.
