Human trafficking exists in the United States and can be considered Modern Day Slavery. Worldwide, it is a $150 billion criminal industry and it is found in every state of the United States. As many as 300,000 children in the US are at risk for sexual exploitation on a yearly basis.
Law Enforcement Officers may encounter a human trafficking operation during the course of their duties: during a traffic stop, during a police raid or even through a walk-in complaint. These situations often lead to the rescue of a human trafficking victim.
The purpose of this course is to provide attendees with a basic education of how to identify Human Trafficking the characteristics of victims and perpetrators, the mechanism of operations, and assessments of trends. The course will also provide case studies and Investigative techniques and trends.

In addition, it touches on the obstacles law enforcement officials must overcome - the substantial legal, cultural, and organizational barriers while investigating and prosecuting trafficking cases.
