EDISON - Today marks National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

Human trafficking and sex trade are known to be problems during the Super Bowl, which will be hosted this year at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.

Human trafficking experts are working with hotel managers to help them identify whether or not their facilities are being used for prostitution.

There have been hundreds of arrests at past Super Bowls, including underage sex workers brought in from not only other states, but countries in Europe and South America, sometimes against their will.
