The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is helping to stop human trafficking, and they’re encouraging riders to be on the lookout for the signs as well.

RTA is providing 45-minute training for new employees, so they can identify the signs of human trafficking. The authority has also posted displays on their buses and trains and even at stops.

“We want to save lives,” George Fields, the RTA director of training and employee development, told WKYC Channel 3’s Hilary Golston. “Plenty of people ride our transit system daily. … in which case … we know that there’s probably situations that are not right.”

Field said riders are empowered to notify authorities if they spot something out of the ordinary through the “iWatch” app. The app can be downloaded onto smart phones through the Apple Store and the Google Play Store.
