This program will cover post-pandemic trends and developments regarding detection, documentation, and relational dynamics involved in human trafficking cases. The presenter will cover the unique and sensitive issues involved in working with human trafficking survivors who face a host of challenges during the pandemic, and often do not identify as “victims.” This program will include a discussion of modern-day victim-law enforcement interactions, pandemic trauma-bonding, and other challenges faced by prosecutors currently handling such cases.

In discussing the “invisible chains” that bind human trafficking victims, this program will include an in-depth examination of the relational dynamics between human traffickers and their victims, which often masquerade as consensual relationships of love and affection. It will discuss the red flags that often fly under the radar, especially when everyone is masked and socially distanced, to be better able to recognize the signs of exploitation associated with this insidious crime.

Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize subtle signs of trafficking activity amid pandemic restrictions
  • Utilize digital investigative techniques to explore relational history between suspected perpetrators and victims
  • Collaborate with other agencies to cultivate post-pandemic intelligence necessary to build a human trafficking case
  • Develop best practices to work with modern trafficking survivors, percipient witnesses, and experts
