LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan's attorney general is leading a new commission aimed at dealing with human trafficking problems in the state.
Attorney General Bill Schuette announced the creation of Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking on Wednesday. The group will include lawmakers, activists and law enforcement. It will be tasked with reviewing Michigan policies and victim services as well as developing plans for raising awareness about the issue.
Schuette says young women can become victims of human trafficking by being forced into prostitution or labor. He says the "modern day form of bondage" is one of the world's fastest growing crimes.
The commission is expected to begin meeting this month. Schuette says he will present the group's findings and recommendations to the legislature and public at the end of the six month review.
