TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Five Kansas groups have been awarded funds from the attorney general’s office to help victims of human trafficking.

The assistance program was established last year after the Legislature passed new laws cracking down on the crime.

The attorney general’s office said Thursday the grants total nearly $70,000 and will be used by groups that aid human trafficking victims in Lawrence, Kansas City, Topeka and Wichita.

More than 200 human trafficking victims were identified for services by the organizations since passage of the 2013 legislation.
