About the Course
This class is designed for probation and parole officers for the purpose of equipping them with skills to interdict suspects and victims involved in human trafficking. The student will understand the dynamics, terminology, and indicators of human trafficking as well as how to interact with both the suspect and the victim. The student will also be able to gather evidence from different areas, to assist in providing advocacy for any possible victims and to move forward with sharing this information with law enforcement, counselors, and victim advocates. The course also uses videos and case studies of both incidents and survivors to help the officer understand the principles being taught and how to apply them.
