Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $199,661)
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, along with its reauthorization legislation, requires significant involvement of law enforcement in cases of human trafficking. Many in the law enforcement field are unfamiliar with the issue and find themselves unequipped to handle a trafficking case and the unique needs of the victims and this crime. In light of the guiding legislation, many in law enforcement recognize the need for a greater understanding of the issue of human trafficking, formal strategies for how to respond to this unique crime, and information from victim service providers and other advocates on how best to work with victims of human trafficking.
