The LSP Special Victims Unit works to rescue and seek justice for the victims of crimes involving the exploitation of children and the trafficking of humans for sex or labor. The public plays an important role in identifying suspects accused of these crimes, and is urged to report criminal or suspicious activity. The Louisiana State Police online reporting system is available to the public through an anonymous reporting form that is submitted to the appropriate investigators. The form can be found by visiting http://la-safe.org/?fbclid=IwAR2WgC1P1h3oEG_A4DhvOzwL8wsAgZmuj_0-RLi0EWq3CXrAAhqJENi2QOY and clicking on the “Suspicious Activity” link.
