Law Enforcement Training
Sex Trafficking Investigation Training
The Michigan Human Trafficking Commission is pleased to announce a Sex Trafficking Investigation Training for Law Enforcement: Sleuthing Force, Fraud, or Coercion-Dispelling the "Consensual" Myth.
This free training will be held at the Eastern Michigan University, in Ypsilanti, MI, on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, 8:00 AM-NOON.
About: Approaches and attitudes toward commercial sex and prostitution are evolving across the state, increasing the vulnerability of providers in the commercial sex industry. Law enforcement must increase the focus on uncovering instances of sex trafficking. Now more than ever, investigators must focus on detecting whether the exchange of commercial sex is the result of force, fraud, or coercion. Assuming the exchange is consensual, or simply asking the conclusory question "is this consensual" will inevitably fail to uncover the likely truth, that someone else is calling the shots. In an effort to equip law enforcement on all levels with strategies and techniques to delve deeper, this training will focus on investigating the impact of force, fraud, coercion and other influences on the provision of prostitution and commercial sex acts.
Reserve your spot by emailing your name, agency, email and phone number to AG-Human-Trafficking-Commission@michigan.gov.
Please feel free to share this announcement with your law enforcement contacts.
