Human Trafficking in Indian Country Training

Event Detail:

This one day tribal training brings together tribal law enforcement, tribal leaders and community stakeholders to address the issue of human trafficking in Indian Country.

Human Trafficking in Native American tribal communities and native villages is a significant and expanding problem that includes sex trafficking and forced labor.  The victims of this crime are adults and children, both male and female. The unique, independent structure of native communities contributes to complex cultural and jurisdictional issues for tribal, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in combatting these crimes.
