Data and Analytics
The goal of the Data and Analytics Committee is to gather information from the community perspective that allows understanding of incidents and prevalence of human trafficking that are not reported to law enforcement.
The Labor Trafficking Committee aims to facilitate a collaborative, multi-agency response to local incidents of labor trafficking and labor exploitation by addressing challenges to identification, investigation, and prosecution of labor trafficking; conducting outreach and training and building partnerships between private and public sector groups to promote enforcement and prevention; and establishing lines of communication and processes for referrals among law enforcement agencies and service providers.
The Labor Trafficking Committee’s work includes:
- Research and analysis to identify the range of sectors in which labor trafficking may occur.
- Targeting high-risk industries for training, outreach, and know your rights sessions for workers and investigators.
- Supporting continued labor trafficking education for Task Force members and critical frontline agencies.
- Continued outreach to other critical stakeholders for Task Force membership and robust labor trafficking prevention and enforcement efforts including civil regulators, inspectors, trade associations, and businesses.
- Assisting with labor trafficking outreach and targeted public awareness in coordination with the Public Outreach and Training Committee.
- Assisting other committees and service providers in the county with identifying labor trafficking survivors.
The goal of the Law Enforcement Committee is to collaborate with all law enforcement entities to share information on human trafficking activity.
The goal of the Legislative Committee is to remain knowledgeable of County and State legislation in order to align legislative priorities that supports and protects victims of human trafficking and enhances the prosecution of traffickers and buyers/consumers.
Public Outreach and Training
The goal of the Public Awareness and Outreach Committee is to create, design, and implement public outreach opportunities about human trafficking including educating citizens, public/private entities, schools, faith-based communities, governmental entities, and providing training to front-line responders and human trafficking stakeholders.
The goals of the Victim Services Committee include: establishing a full-service facility or network of facilities and services based in the County to house victim-survivors of all forms of human trafficking on both short- and long-term bases; maintaining an updated crisis intervention protocol to effectively serve victim-survivors; review and determine the appropriateness of government services for victim-survivors; and share with law enforcement information that assists with holding traffickers accountable for their actions.
