JERSEY CITY - Hotels will be filled with tourists during the Super Bowl next month, and Jersey City authorities are trying to address concerns about prostitution.

Experts on human trafficking 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 for solicitation.

Those incidents can include underage sex workers brought in from other states and countries, sometimes against their will.

"Anyone who might actually be involved in rendering any kind of services to the people that come in from out of town," says attorney Stephen Deluca. "We want them trained so they can identify potential victims and get them the help they need."

Past Super Bowls arrests have involved sex workers from the U.S., Europe, and Central and South America.
