-Presence of a third party (pimp/trafficker) appearing to be monitoring a hallway or door

-Guest is overly concerned with surveillance cameras or entrance policies

-Someone is dropped off and visits for 30 minutes - 1 hour only - or someone waits for that person on property or in the parking lot

-Abandoned or locked out young adults on property

-Sales flyers left behind that detail suspicious magazine sales tactics

There is real opportunity for change here - hotel chains don't need to continue the winking-and-nodding .It is. time for all hotel chains - as well as lesser known and smaller hotels -- to introduce strict policies for their hotels for identifying and stopping suspected sex trafficking going on in their rooms. We hope there is oversight against giving such locations PPP's -- payroll protection from Congress-- for allowing human trafficking. As for bystanders who may come into contact with traffickers, turning a blind eye cannot be an option. It's time for justice to run its course, and for Nevada to be a national model in reform against enabling of prostitution and modern-day slavery. Call the local authorities and report it.

There must be bipartisan legislative work and law enforcement action to protect against prostitution as well as punishment of the traffickers -- and the key enablers, including the hotels.
