Collaboration is the key to successful investigations and prosecutions in human trafficking cases. With tight budgets, limited resources, and over-extended personnel, many law enforcement agencies are underutilizing the resources already available to them in the community. Learn how to bring together partners already operating in their field of expertise to coordinate wrap-around services for the victims of human trafficking that your agency is serving before there is an emergent need. Utilize existing relationships with your local shelters, medical experts, non-profits, and social services agencies to assist in the holistic approach to a victim-centered human trafficking investigation through a formal mobile data terminal which should result in an memorandum of understanding between all participants.
