This course will be a two part course : Human Trafficking Interdiction and Human Trafficking Proactive Operations
Human Trafficking Interdiction
This class is designed for patrol officers and will equip them with skills to interdict suspects and victims involved in human trafficking. The student will understand the dynamics, the terminology and indicators of human trafficking and how to interact with both the suspect and the victim. The student will also be able to gather evidence from different sources to include electronics, to assist in providing advocacy for any possible victims and to move forward with a possible criminal case against the trafficker.
Human Trafficking Proactive Operations
This course allows the students to understand, why proactive operations can be so successful in battling human trafficking and how to conduct the various types of operations. The course will cover the development of an operational plan, obstacles of operations, officer safety issues, choosing a location, best practices for interactions with victims and suspects and the various types of operations to include, hotel/motel, casinos, bus depot/train station, truck stop, illicit massage businesses, “track”/”blade”, travelers, sex offender operations, counter demand operations. Proactive human trafficking operations are not only a deterrent but allow the agency and officers the opportunity to identify and rescue human trafficking victims and arrest traffickers. These operations can be complex, confusing and if not properly carried out can create officer safety issues and result in additional harm to victims. Having the proper training on these types of operations is critical.
