Child Sex Trafficking: Law Enforcement Response March 9-11, 2015 | Stonehill College, North Easton, MA

MPTC hosted a three day training provided by Amber Alert targeted for law enforcement with the focus on child sex trafficking investigations.  Officers were trained to properly understand, recognize, and investigate cases involving child sex trafficking and exploitation.  The training highlighted the victims’ perspective and improved officers’ awareness of the dynamics between the exploited child and their traffickers.

Participants also received instruction on tactical implementation designed to identify human trafficking and exploitation, conduct enforcement operations as well as receive instruction on the roles of non-profits, probation and parole.

The training was well attended; over 90 officers were present all three days of training, ranging from US Marshals, FBI, State and Local police including officers from New York and Rhode Island in attendance.
