Online Training: Working with Law Enforcement

An effective and comprehensive response to human trafficking requires advocates and law enforcement to work together and establish a clear understanding and respect for what advocates can and cannot do and what law enforcement can and cannot do.
This online training created by Polaris Project is recommended for service providers who interact with law enforcement and are seeking to build an understanding of how law enforcement is structured and operates. The training outlines the role of law enforcement in combating trafficking and explores best practices for building partnerships with local, state, and federal law enforcement.  For additional online trainings, click here.
