Law Enforcement Awareness Training

Human trafficking is a hidden crime, and the first step to combating it is to identify victims so they can be rescued and help bring their perpetrators to justice. The Blue Campaign has developed awareness and training materials to help increase awareness and educate on the indicators of human trafficking.

DHS provides a web-based training course to law enforcement officials to train officers on recognizing human trafficking and responding appropriately.

Combatting Human Trafficking in Tribal Communities

Interviewing Victims of Human Trafficking

Scott Santoro, Blue Campaign Senior Training Advisor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC), and Dr. Paulette Hubbert, Unit Chief for the Victim Assistance Program at U.S. Immigration Custom Enforcement (ICE) cover the effects of trauma on victims’ memories, how to avoid retraumatizing victims, and other strategies to effectively interview victims of trauma.

The FAC 022 - Combating Trafficking in Persons for the Acquisition Workforce course is tailored for the U.S. Government acquisition workforce on combating human trafficking using the pertinent provisions of the federal acquisition regulations (FAR).
