“Identifying and Assisting Victims of Human Trafficking”

Human trafficking is a pervasive problem in Colorado and a problem that we need to be aware of and work together to prevent.  Those in the security field are specifically trained to observe and provide assistance and therefore are in a unique position to be on the “front lines” of identifying human trafficking and assisting victims.  This presentation will discuss the problem of human trafficking, how to identify it, and how to take action against it. 

Our Guest Presenter
