Join us as we hear from Colorado Springs Police Department's Human Trafficking unit.
In 2014 the Colorado Springs Police Department founded the Vice and Human Trafficking Unit in response to the increased need for specialized investigation in human trafficking in El Paso and Teller Counties.
The mission of the Colorado Springs Police Department, Vice and Human Trafficking Unit is to identify, locate, and recover juvenile and adult victims of labor trafficking and the commercial sex industry. The unit also seeks to disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations formed for the purpose of furthering the victimization which occurs in human trafficking. We hope to increase the awareness and knowledge of the harsh realities of human trafficking in our area. With this awareness, we can educate the public on how to recognize the signs of trafficked Victims.
