NH joins in anti-human trafficking effort

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire has joined other states in asking Congress to fund anti-human trafficking measures.

New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster and attorney generals in 46 other states sent a letter asking Congress to fund a measure passed in 2000 designed to protect human trafficking victims and help prosecute people doing the trafficking.

Earlier this year, the attorney general's office announced the formation of a commission to combat human trafficking in underage prostitutes and coerced laborers. Part of the mission was to train law enforcement and other first responders on how to recognize the victims of human trafficking.

New Hampshire in 2009 was among the first states to make human trafficking a crime.
