Heart of Texas Human Trafficking Coalition training in August in Waco

Collective Liberty and the Heart of Texas Human Trafficking Coalition would like to invite you to a free 5 day training institute from August 19 to August 23 in Waco, Texas.

This training is free to all badged law enforcement. Travel, lodging and per diem must be covered by your agency. ​All we ask is that you bring your passion, and your own initial knowledge of suspected commercial front brothels in your districts.

For this training to be successful we strongly request that there be at least one local law enforcement officer AND one local prosecutor in attendance from each jurisdiction. Jurisdictions are capped at 4 total participants. ​Collective Liberty, in collaboration with the Heart of Texas Anti Trafficking Coalition, has designed a training for law enforcement and prosecutors in Texas to walk through lessons learned, best practices, and ways to human trafficking in your communities. This multi-day training will also be an opportunity for you to connect with and learn best practices from colleagues throughout the region working on these same difficult to investigate crimes. All participants will be able to engage in a dynamic, hands-on case study that will take you from community complaint through to trial and sentencing, facilitated by national law enforcement and prosecution experts.

Based on feedback from previous institutes there will be two tactical exercises throughout the week that will allow participants to explore new skills and identify areas they would like support in.

The anti-trafficking methods we will focus on this week are:

  1. Commercial front brothel trafficking (IMBs and Illicit Cantinas)
  2. Demand-focused investigations
  3. Hotel and motel based trafficking utilizing the internet
