COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson is working with federal officials to bring more attention to human trafficking.

Wilson said he is working with the Department of Homeland Security to distribute posters and help train workers in emergency rooms, urgent care centers, hotels, airports, bus stations, adult businesses, rest areas, and truck stops about how women get forced into the sex trade.

A new law requires the businesses to post information about human trafficking.

Wilson had made fighting human trafficking one of his key goals since becoming attorney general in 2011.
