DTT announced today their continued support for Convenience Stores Against Trafficking (CSAT), a program of In Our Backyard, in the form of a $2,000 donation to the organization.
DTT is the leading provider of managed loss prevention and surveillance technology to the C-Store, Hospitality, and Retail industries. CSAT is a program of In Our Backyard, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit known for its anti-human trafficking work surrounding the past nine Super Bowls.
In December, DTT pledged their commitment to CSAT’s initiative of providing resources to C-Store operators. These resources allow operators to identify and safely report trafficking that passes through their stores. Today, DTT strengthened that ongoing commitment with a $2,000 donation. The contribution will help CSAT work towards the goal of ending human trafficking in the United States.
“This donation from DTT enables us to get human trafficking training and victim outreach materials into hundreds of additional stores across the United States,” shared Juliana Williams, program director of Convenience Stores Against Trafficking. “By stepping up to support Convenience Stores Against Trafficking, DTT is saving lives!”
“I’ve worked closely with Ms. Williams for the past several months as CSAT has provided training materials and support to C-Store operators, helping them to identify and report human trafficking,” said Crista Backo, Director of C-Store Sales at DTT. “I’ve seen the impact her program has had in the C-Store community, and I’m incredibly proud to meaningfully contribute to those efforts with this donation.”
Founded in 1999 by Sam Naficy, DTT provides video surveillance and loss prevention solutions to the hospitality and retail industries. DTT has supported more than 36,000 clients while protecting trillions of dollars in assets and overseeing nearly 2 million employees.
