After two separate incidences of criminal activity at a Motel 6 in his city, Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian is urging hotel and motel owners to utilize public safety training offered by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA). The mayor reached out to the Rhode Island Hospitality Association in hopes they’ll highlight the resources available, which include training to better identify signs of human trafficking and other suspicious activity. Last week, three people were arrested and charged with operating a meth lab at the Motel 6 on Jefferson Boulevard. A few days later, police arrested a Massachusetts man there for trafficking a 17-year-old girl for sexual purposes. “My administration is dedicated to ensuring public safety. I want to assure the people of Warwick that we are taking the incidents which have occurred at Motel 6 over the past week very seriously,” said Avedisian. “I have spoken with Dale Venturini about ways in which the Rhode Island Hospitality Association can help hoteliers recognize the signs of human trafficking, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their assistance. I appreciate Dale’s efforts in getting the word out to hoteliers about the various training materials available online through the American Hotel & Lodging Association.” Those two incidents were the latest in a string of crime at that Motel 6. Police said they’ve made 75 arrests there in the past year, and the department received 1,122 calls regarding the motel.
