Human Trafficking (Afternoon)
June 3, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $20
Human trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transporting, or procurement of a person for labor or services for the purpose of involuntary servitude, slavery, or forced commercial sex acts. Thousands of people each year – both within the United States and abroad – fall victimto this horrific crime. Victims are forced to work in motels, sweatshops, and the sex trade across the world and even in private residences for little or no pay. Subjected to sexual exploitation or forced labor by their captors, trafficking victims are robbed of their dignity and often frightened into silence. In most cases, victims are hiding in plain sight. Texas is home to not only major human trafficking corridors, but many individual trafficking victims are brought to the state and forced to work against their will.
This training will satisfy Texas mandated training on the topic of Human Trafficking for all Texas LEO’s. This training will also provide detailed insight on the trafficking trade along with resourceful tools on combatting the furtherance of Human Trafficking.
