AMU Human Trafficking Law Enforcement Public Safety

The Challenges Law Enforcement Faces to Prevent Human Trafficking

Human trafficking and sex slavery deny freedom to 24.9 million people around the world. It’s an incredibly lucrative, multi-billion dollar criminal enterprise that “sells” people over and over for profit.

For law enforcement officers, it’s difficult to identify victims and then get them to cooperate in order to determine who is forcing or coercing them into human trafficking rings.

American Military University’s Dr. Michael Pittaro joins In Public Safety’s Leischen Kranick to discuss what law enforcement is doing to combat human trafficking; the challenges local, state, and federal agencies continue to face; and what more can be done to reduce human trafficking both domestically and internationally.
