WASHINGTON — Amtrak, in collaboration with federal agencies, plans to train 8,000 employees nationwide about the dangers of human trafficking and the signs that go along with the often hidden crime.

Using materials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Transportation, Amtrak workers in all of its service areas — 46 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada — will learn how to identify trafficking victims and how to report potential crimes, officials announced Thursday.
