The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Alabama and the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division have collaborated to provide this free training seminar. It is being hosted by AUM's Alabama Crime Prevention Clearinghouse and its goal is to educate local, state and federal law enforcement officers, investigators, agents and prosecutors about human trafficking.
There is no cost to attend this training
THIS TRAINING IS FOR SWORN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PROSECUTORS ONLY! ALL ATTENDEES MUST PRESENT CURRENT LAW ENFORCEMENT CREDENTIALS/PICTURE ID FOR ENTRY.
This seminar is designed to provide a better and more comprehensive understanding of federal human trafficking crimes, which include both sex and labor trafficking. It will educate attendees on how to recognize common indicators that will identify potential victims, and it will provide methods for effective victim interviews and teach investigative strategies to enable them to successfully work cases of modern day slavery and sex trafficking in their communities.
Instructors include some of the nation's leading subject matter experts and topics include*:

- National and regional trends in sex and labor trafficking - do we have these in our region? Are we looking in the right place?
- Victim-centered, trauma informed approach - what is it and how do I do it?
- Proactive victim and case identification techniques using a multi-disciplinary team approach
- How to make your case larger and stronger
- Not another war story - sex and labor trafficking case studies with practical lessons learned
- Anticipating and defeating common defenses
- What's my role - the roles of prosecutors and investigators on a human trafficking task force. Techniques to anticipate and face the growing pains
- Evidence to make a case stronger
- Navigating victim's needs throughout the criminal justice system process - it takes a team
- What do I do with the victim who commits a crime?
- Restitution - investigator and prosecutor's roles
* Topics subject to change depending on instructor availability.
This is not a course that should be taken simply to receive training hours. This course is designed for attendees who currently investigate/prosecute human trafficking cases, or are genuinely interested in learning how to do so in the future.
Law enforcement will receive approximately seven APOST training hours. CLE credit for attorneys will be applied for with the Alabama State bar.
