In 2017, law enforcement in Ohio investigated more cases of human trafficking than in any year since the state has been keeping track. The 202 such cases statewide tracked by the state attorney general’s Human Trafficking Commission represent a 50 percent increase just from 2016.

The report showed that some who were trafficked were used for forced labor, but most were involved in the sex trade.
