Human Trafficking, Sexual Exploitation and Slavery Investigations
Millions of women, men and children around the world are subjected to forced labor, domestic servitude, or the sex trade at the hands of human traffickers. A form of modern-day slavery, the inhumane practice of human trafficking takes place all of over the world including here in the United States. Human trafficking is one of the most heinous crimes investigated by HSI. In its worst manifestation, human trafficking is akin to modern-day slavery. They are forced into prostitution, involuntary labor and other forms of servitude to repay debts – often incurred during entry into the United States.
Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is the lead federal agency with the full range of investigative and border related authorities to investigate human trafficking and smuggling. HSI investigations identify transnational criminal organizations engaged in human trafficking and smuggling, and disrupt and dismantle the groups posing the greatest risk to the United States. Preventing all forms of human trafficking and smuggling, as well as identifying and rescuing victims is one of our highest priorities.
The HSI human trafficking course will focus on: Sex trafficking; Forced Child Labor; Domestic Servitude; Victim-centric Investigations; Victim Protections; and Blue Campaign.
