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 U.S. 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.

    ~    Basic education of how to identify Human Trafficking
    ~    Characteristics of victims and perpetrators
