Human trafficking awareness training provided to federal departments
As part of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness Month, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced in late January that the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) will begin to provide human trafficking awareness training as part of basic training courses. The FLETC courses are used to train federal law enforcement officers and agents from every Cabinet level department, and will equip graduates with the ability to better recognize signs of human trafficking that they might encounter in their routine law enforcement duties.
Director Connie Patrick spoke of FLETC’s commitment to working with law enforcement partners to ensure the safety of their communities, saying “Through these new training curriculum taught as part of our basic training academies, thousands of frontline federal law enforcement personnel will be able to recognize and help those who are victims of this heinous crime.”
