From Barriers to Solutions: Investigating and Prosecuting Human Trafficking

Human trafficking thrives in rural, suburban, and urban jurisdictions across the country because it is routinely undetected, overlooked, or misidentified. Further, a lack of coordination between the criminal justice system and community-based programs results in a lack of victim identification and offender accountability. This webinar recording highlights key findings from an Urban Institute/Northeastern University report: “Identifying Challenges to Improve the Investigation and Prosecution of State and Local Human Trafficking Cases.” The presenter offers solutions for enhancing victim identification and safety and increasing offender accountability through the effective investigation and prosecution of human trafficking cases.

This webinar recording should qualify prosecutors for 1.5 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) credits. Prosecutors are encouraged to contact their state bar association in reference to application requirements and related fees.
