Human trafficking is a crime and a form of modern-day slavery. DHS is working to end it.
This graphic visually depicts the accomplishment of the DHS Blue Campaign, particularly over the last year.

Law enforcement officers and others can show the poster to potential victims of human trafficking; the victims can obtain assistance from the Homeland Security Investigations Tip line that is available 24 hours a day with language capability in over 300 languages and dialects.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) seeks to address the growing problem of human trafficking through social science-based research. Through operationally relevant, end-user focused applied social and behavioral science research, S&T strives to enable, inform, and assist operational partners, decision makers, and policy makers in lessening the human and monetary costs of human trafficking. S&T has embarked on two unique efforts to support this goal: (1) the Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery Foundational Effort and (2) the Human Trafficking System Analysis and Technology Roadmap.
