According to the US State Department, up to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year. Sex traffickers often post pictures of their victims in hotel rooms online as advertisements, so TraffickCam was created as a crowdsourced database that could help police departments track them down. The initiative invites frequent traveller to take and upload pictures of their hotel rooms, which can then be cross-referenced against suspicious images. If matches are found, the images can be used as evidence to help prosecute the sex traffickers by determining the location they were taken at.
