About this event


Human Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery and is a crime against humanity. A multi-billion-dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to millions of people around the world. And no matter where you live, chances are it’s happening nearby. From under-aged girls forced into prostitution at a truck stop… To the man discovered washing dishes in a restaurant kitchen, stripped of his passport and held against his will… To undocumented workers forced to clean guest rooms at a resort hotel. All trafficking victims share one essential experience: the loss of freedom.

Approximately 300,000 American children are forced into slavery through domestic minor sex trafficking. Pimps and predators are constantly prowling the streets, the mall, and social media looking for unsuspecting victims, who are usually easy to spot. Human Trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world after drug trafficking, and is the fastest growing. Victims of human trafficking may suffer from physical and psychological problems because they are often forced or coerced into dangerous conditions. Education is the key when it comes to recognizing, investigating, responding and assisting with the prosecution of human trafficking cases.

CLASS OBJECTIVES: This Four-Hour On-Line Class is designed for Law Enforcement Personnel, School Resource Officers, NGOs – Social Service Providers, Victim Advocates, Medical Professionals, Places of Worship and Faith-Based Organizations, and anyone interested in learning more about this horrific crime against humanity.

The primary focus of this class is to provide a clearer understanding of the origins, methods of operations, and indicators associated with the trafficking of human beings that create big profits for the traffickers. Human Trafficking includes forced labor, domestic servitude, sex trafficking, and domestic minor sex trafficking. The class will acquaint students with the importance of a victim-centered approach to the investigation, rescue of victims and the importance of a collaborative effort between law enforcement and social service providers and the criminal justice system to ensure a successful prosecution.

The class instructor will use PowerPoint and Video and provide handout materials for each student.

INSTRUCTOR: Tom Gillan is Director of The National Institute for Human Trafficking Research and Training – A program that provides research and training on the subject of Human Trafficking. Mr. Gillan recently completed a 20-year career as Director of the Criminal Justice Office – where he worked directly with 28 victims of human trafficking.

As a certified Law Enforcement Instructor, Tom is an instructor with Training Force USA, the Regional Community Policing Institute, the Criminal Justice Department at Saint Leo University, The Florida Sheriff’s Association, and the Florida Attorney General’s Office. Mr. Gillan has received numerous awards and recognition for his work from The U.S. Department of Justice, The U.S. Attorney’s Office, The FBI National Academy, The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, The Florida Department of Corrections, and most recently, The 2012 Trainer of The Year Award from The Florida Network of Victim Witness Services.

TARGET AUDIENCE: All members of the criminal justice and legal community, non-governmental social service providers, victim advocates, medical professionals, places of worship/faith leaders, and first responders.
