Additional Event Information

These types of  investigations and prosecutions are very unique.  They require a specific understanding of a nuanced and often misunderstood crime involving a comparatively new law.  Human trafficking cases often are multifaceted and require a complex investigative and prosecutorial skill set.  To effectively build this skill set, it is imperative that stakeholders receive a solid foundational understanding of human trafficking.  Using a data driven approach, this program provides practical, effective training for law enforcement and prosecutors to promote best practices and outcomes in the response to human trafficking. 

This program, developed in partnership with the Human Trafficking Institute in Washington D.C., will increase the overall awareness and understanding of human trafficking and dispel common myths and misconceptions through the use of data.  Students will leave with an understanding and working knowledge of applicable laws, as well as a greater ability to identify victims and to complete successful investigations and prosecutions.  A final goal will be to improve Virginia‚Äôs collaborative response to combatting this enormous issue.
