Camarillo, CA

This is a free, in-person, 2.5-day advanced human trafficking training for law enforcement and prosecutors to provide innovative, practical, and trauma-informed strategies to enhance victim-centered responses, and offender-focused investigations and prosecutions.

This training will discuss—

  • investigative strategies that do not rely on victim disclosures to identify evidence of labor and sex trafficking,
  • how introducing evidence of trauma at trial can help maximize offender accountability, and
  • interview techniques and approaches to address the fears and barriers that impact a victim’s ability to participate in the criminal justice process.
