Lara Keel Texas Lobbyist News: TAG Develops Human Trafficking Prevention Manuel
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott recently spoke about new developments on further educating the state’s criminal justice system on the issue of Human Trafficking Prevention. When Americans think of Human Trafficking, they often think of Eastern European countries or other far removed places. Little do they know that there are actually Human Trafficking Operations going on in their own backyards, especially in Texas border towns. In an effort to increase awareness of Human Trafficking, Attorney General Greg Abbott and the Human Trafficking Prevention Task Force have created a prevention manual for those in the criminal justice profession. Educating law enforcement on how to identify and aid trafficking victims is crucial to putting Human Trafficking to an end. This manual can be viewed online here.
