MT Attorney General announces partnership to fight human trafficking

MONTANA — Montana Attorney General, Austin Knudsen, announced a new partnership called the Sentinel Project between the Department of Justice (DOJ), Montana Beer and Wine Distributors Association (MBWDA), and Montana Association of Chiefs of Police (MACOP) to fight human trafficking in the state.

Beer and wine distribution employees statewide have participated in the awareness training, which included a viewing of a video that includes real-life stories of human trafficking in Montana. All members of MBWDA and DOJ employees will be equipped with contact information to alert both authorities and our statewide human trafficking hotline, 1-833-406-STOP, if they spot suspicious behaviors.
