Advanced Human Trafficking Investigations Training
"Case examples and scope of knowledge from 3 instructors from very different perspectives was helpful. The analyst perspective was a great addition. As an analyst myself, I found it was a necessary inclusion as we are often "left out" of cases by sworn who don't know what we can do or how much we can help!"

Human Trafficking Training in Indian Country "The trainers have first-hand knowledge “boots on the ground” experience to share. The training on how social media and the internet play a role in human trafficking was very valuable. Being able to see into this world will help me to recognize it in the future."
