Study on the Super Bowl and Sex Trafficking

The aim of this study was to provide research-based information to future Super Bowl or other large event stakeholders about methods of research that can help to steer efforts toward sex trafficking prevention, detection, and intervention. While the authors found no evidence indicating the 2014 Super Bowl was a causal factor for sex trafficking in the northern New Jersey area in the days preceding the game, they did conclude that the Super Bowl, or any other large event that provides a significant concentration of people in a relatively confined urban area, becomes a desirable location for a trafficker to bring their victims for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation.
