Intensive Human Trafficking Training for Prosecutors and Law Enforcement Officers
September 27 @ 12:00 am - September 28 @ 11:59 pm
DCJS, CASC and the VSP together are offering a free two-day training to both prosecutors and law enforcement on the Investigation and Prosecution of Human Trafficking. It will be held in Williamsburg at the Great Wolf Lodge from September 27 – 28, 2023.
These types of investigations and prosecutions are very unique. They require a specific understanding of a nuanced and often misunderstood crime involving a comparatively new law. Human trafficking cases often are multifaceted and require a complex investigative and prosecutorial skill set. To effectively build this skill set, it is imperative that stakeholders receive a solid foundational understanding of human trafficking. Using a data driven approach, this program provides practical, effective training for law enforcement and prosecutors to promote best practices and outcomes in the response to human trafficking.
This program, developed in partnership with the Human Trafficking Institute in Washington D.C., will increase the overall awareness and understanding of human trafficking and dispel common myths and misconceptions through the use of data. Students will leave with an understanding and working knowledge of applicable laws, as well as a greater ability to identify victims and to complete successful investigations and prosecutions. A final goal will be to improve Virginia’s collaborative response to combatting this enormous issue.
The program is free. Lodging for two nights (September 26th and 27th) will be provided, if requested, for attendees whose offices are more than twenty-five miles from the training site. Free parking is available. Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge both days. Dinner will be on your own and not reimbursed. Mileage is NOT covered and will be the attendee’s responsibility.
Seats are limited. By registering to attend, you are agreeing to attend and participate in the entire two-day program. CLE’s and PIC credits will be provided.
