Program Description

The Anti-Human Trafficking Training for Law Enforcement and State Prosecutors Program, administered by BJA, is designed to provide national support and improve the capacity of state and local criminal justice systems to increase their capacity to investigate and prosecute the crime of Human Trafficking as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. BJA has provided anti-human trafficking training to law enforcement since 2005 and to state prosecutors since 2011. The statutory authority for this program is 22 U.S.C. ? 7105(b)(2). The purpose of this FY 2014 competitive funding announcement is to select a provider to deliver nationwide, anti-human trafficking training and technical assistance (TTA) services to law enforcement agencies as well as state prosecutors who are increasingly seeing human trafficking cases but are unprepared to work with victims and/or prosecute the crime. These services include, but are not limited to, training sessions and educational sessions developed and conducted by relevant subject matter experts. The selected TTA provider will provide training upon request to law enforcement agencies and state prosecutors, to more effectively address human trafficking within their jurisdictions and across jurisdictions. This grant announcement specifically requests applications for a nationwide TTA assistance provider; it does not solicit applications from individual jurisdictions to establish state and local anti-human trafficking training projects.
