Trafficking in Persons
Trafficking in Persons Council
The Interagency Task Force on Trafficking in Persons, established by the Connecticut General Assembly in 2004, is now the Trafficking in Persons Council. The original mission of the task force was to research the extent of trafficking in Connecticut, as well as determine what services are available to victims and how well equipped Connecticut law enforcement agencies are to deal with the problem.
In the 2007 legislative session, the General Assembly passed PA 07-107, AA Establishing a Trafficking in Persons Council, tasking the new group with determining what services are available to victims and how to best coordinate a response. Additionally, funding was provided to the Office of Victim Services to develop a coordinated response system to trafficking of persons, including providing trainings on how to address the issue of human trafficking. The council includes law enforcement officials, leaders of state agencies, and community-based advocates and providers of services to victims. The council reports to the legislature annually.
