For Law Enforcement

Confronting the Demand for Sex-Trafficking-A Handbook for Law Enforcement

This handbook is specifically designed for anyone working with law enforcement to combat sex trafficking by confronting the demand for prostituted women and children, especially girls. It hopes to provide tools to law-enforcement officials to increase conviction against traffickers, thereby making it harder for the sex-trafficking industry to operate.
