Event description

Description

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton invites you to participate in a special collaborative human trafficking training event hosted by the Office of the Attorney General, the Buffett-McCain Institute Initiative to Combat Modern Slavery, and the Texas Department of Public Safety, to address labor trafficking in the agricultural sector in South Texas. The training will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at the University of Texas Rio Grande Community Engagement and Student Success Building located at 1407 East Freddy Gonzalez Drive, Room 1300, Edinburg, Texas. Law enforcement personnel attending this training are eligible for eight hours of Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) credit. A complimentary lunch will be provided for those who RSVP.

The goal of this training is to provide law enforcement with tools and tips for investigating both labor and sex trafficking cases in South Texas. This training walks participants through actual cases prosecuted in the state of Texas, identifies the tools of traffickers and how they are typically utilized to obtain and maintain victims, outlines victim needs and the barriers to identification and rehabilitation, and gives participants red flags and interview tips to begin the victim identification process.

Fighting human trafficking is a high priority in Texas, and we greatly appreciate your support and attendance at this training. Please direct questions about the training to Rebecca Vieh, Program Specialist, Office of the Attorney General, at (512) 936-0560 or Rebecca.Vieh@oag.texas.gov.
