Balancing Collaboration, Confidentiality and Privilege on Human Trafficking Cases - Webinar 2

The prevalence of human trafficking across the country is widespread—spanning small, rural jurisdictions to sprawling cities—and affects both domestic and foreign-born children and adults. Because of the coercive and violent nature of human trafficking, it is common for victims to experience overlapping forms of victimization, particularly domestic violence and sexual assault.

The National BWC Toolkit is a clearinghouse for criminal justice practitioners interested in planning and implementing a body-worn camera program in an effort to strengthen community trust and confidence in the justice system and improve officer and community safety. The toolkit consolidates and translates research, promising practices, templates, and tools that have been developed by high-quality experts.
