Issue Area #5: Tools for a Victim-Centered Criminal Justice Response

This workshop is designed to give Human Trafficking Investigators an understanding of psychological effects of Human Trafficking, so more Victim Centered-Offender Focused Investigations occur, ensuring the victims needs are met, and aiming to conduct investigations and prosecutions of offenders without victim cooperation, and without the arrest of victims. Then shifting their investigations from the victim, to the offender to ensure the victim is not necessary for investigative and purposes of prosecution. In addition we will discuss how to conduct these operations using minimal funding, and manpower.
