LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada law enforcement agencies are launching a billboard campaign to raise awareness about human trafficking.

Five electronic billboards began carrying the advertisements this week featuring the phone number for the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline.

The hotline allows people to anonymously report tips about human trafficking and offers help for victims.

KLAS-TV reports the billboard ads, which were donated by Clear Channel Outdoor, will run for about 15 weeks at major intersections around Las Vegas.

Metro Police Lt. Karen Hughes told the Las Vegas Sun that officers in her department have already reported encountering 132 child victims of sex trafficking in 2013.
