ERASE Child Trafficking (ERASE), a US-based non-profit organization with a global impact that focuses on eliminating child trafficking, announced today that it is working to provide law enforcement advanced training in the fight against human trafficking.
The executive team of trainers represents more than 80 years of combined legal and law enforcement experience. The instructors have helped prosecute traffickers in federal and state courts, assisted in writing anti-human trafficking legislation, and have a deep understanding of the impact of human trafficking in communities across the country.
“We are committed to working together with law enforcement. I can’t think of anything more important than keeping our children safe by providing law enforcement the tools they need to keep traffickers off the street, said Sandra Sparks of ERASE Child Trafficking.
Law Enforcement Advanced Training In The Fight Against Human Trafficking
How to investigate Human trafficking crimes is often not taught to police officers due to limited training funds, or police commanders prioritizing other crimes. Yet human trafficking is perceived by the public to be a serious and growing problem. Advanced Human Trafficking Training helps police redefine their roles and responsibilities in the fight against human trafficking.
Educational programs for law enforcement offers quality training for all ranks, from patrol officers to commanders, and provides a solid foundation for practical law enforcement administration and investigation. These are not lectures, but interactive courses, that have been taught all across the U.S.
Specialized courses will be available to law enforcement officers across the country at little cost through funds raised by ERASE. People and businesses will be able to donate funds to help provide advanced training to law enforcement within their community. The inaugural class will be held at Aventura Police Department on January 30, 2017 in Aventura, Florida.
