Human Trafficking—How States are Responding

Human trafficking, a form of modern-day slavery, is a multibillion dollar, worldwide industry and one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises. The Polaris Project estimates that the number of adults and children being held and forced into labor in the United States numbers in the hundreds of thousands. States have taken action, however, setting up task forces to assess the extent of human trafficking and experimenting with policies to encourage reporting, train law enforcement personnel and increase the criminal penalties for perpetrators. This FREE CSG eCademy webcast provided an overview of human trafficking and highlighted examples of state, federal and non-profit collaboration to combat the crime.
