In case you weren't aware that child sex trafficking is a heinous crime, Los Angeles County law enforcement officials are going to make extra, extra sure that you do by unveiling a multimedia awareness campaign starting Thursday.

Anti-child sex trafficking signage will be plastered at Metro train stations, bus stops, on all rail cars, trains, and on more than 3,000 buses thanks to County Supervisor Don Knabe who originally called for the campaign. And thanks to a generous donation from Clear Channel, the anti-child sex trafficking messages will also cover 90 billboards and light up digital displays throughout the county.
