Store Reference Sheet:

CSAT provides reference sheets containing indicators of human trafficking and safe response protocols for store employees. Reference sheets are posted in the manager’s office or by the phone to keep key points accessible in case of a suspected trafficking situation.

Freedom Stickers:

Public restrooms are often the only place a victim of human trafficking is alone and safe. C-stores post Freedom Stickers in restroom stalls with the National Human Trafficking Hotline and a message of hope, creating a pathway to freedom for victims from their traffickers. Victims can call or text to arrange a safety plan and connect to services.

The National Human Trafficking Hotline is run by a nongovernmental agency and staffed 24/7 by highly trained advocates. The Hotline has access to more than 200 languages and has procedures in place in all 50 states to ensure that specific law enforcement and service providers who have expertise in human trafficking can respond as needed.

Request an In-Person Training:

CSAT provides experts in human trafficking that are well-versed in the c-store industry for trainings at all-staff meetings and trade shows upon request. In 2018, CSAT spoke at M-PACT, an IPCA retailer meeting, WOMA, PMAA Executive’s Meeting, POC, the Southern C-Store Show, and the Loss Prevention Network Conference. CSAT is scheduled to speak at the Gulf Coast Expo, M-PACT, IPM&CSA Convention, and the UPMRA Convention this year.
