Human Trafficking is more pervasive in Iowa than many are aware and significantly impacts the quality of life for persons living in Iowa and surrounding states. Human sex trafficking involves children and adults enticed and/or forced into the illicit commercial sex industry to include prostitution and pornography. Gang members or associates are often engaged in the grooming, recruiting, and exploitation of persons used for human sex trafficking. The purpose of this training is to provide law enforcement, corrections, and prosecution
personnel with insight into how to address human trafficking activity through legal remedies, understanding victimology, understanding the drug and gang connections with human trafficking, investigation and prosecution strategies, available resources, and how to gain cooperation from victims and how to provide proper support.

The Human Trafficking & Gang Influences workshop will address the following topics:
o Human Trafficking 101
o Human Trafficking & Drugs
o Victimology & how to interview a possible human trafficking victim.
o Investigative techniques – practical exercise
o Survivor Perspective – a survivor of human trafficking will discuss effective and ineffective interactions with law enforcement.
o Parent Perspective – the mother of a teenage survivor will share her perspective as a parent, including interactions with law enforcement which were helpful and experiences that created barriers.
o Advocate resources – effective criminal justice interactions and barriers to avoid when working with survivors
o Gang influences in Iowa and their connection with human trafficking
o Networking through the MGIA secure web site
