LOWCOUNTRY HUMAN TRAFFICKING TASK FORCE
Who We Are
An advocating entity educating the community
Here at the Lowcountry Human Trafficking Task Force, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a safer place for all from Human Trafficking. Our decision making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high quality data evaluation from law enforcement professionals, medical personal, and service providers. We strive to build productive relationships with our community as we work together to make our home, and the general population, free of modern day slavery.

With this initiative, our goal is to promote advanced training opportunities for our law enforcement, host educational events for our youth, and provide the services needed to survivors of Human Trafficking. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for identifying victims, prosecuting perpetrators, and properly addressing the issue with our community. The task force is composed of sub committees that each illustrate the specific needs of the multidimensional movement to end slavery. Read more about our committee opportunities below.
Law Enforcement Committee: strategize ongoing or future investigations and prosecutions, identify potential targets, develop risk assessments, and establish a clear referral process between law enforcement and victim service providers.
Victim Services Committee: Creates a resource, asset map or referral list to identify organizations that provide services to survivors. Any existing gaps in services should also be addressed to the task force.
Training Committee: Strengthen both the task force and the communities knowledge when identifying and addressing Human Trafficking. The task force is described, the geographic risks exposed, the scope of trafficking identified, and the process of reporting tips is explained.
Policy and Legislation Committee: Discusses, measures, and evaluates the extent in which Human Trafficking is addressed in legislation. Also informs the task force on any pending legislation related to Human Trafficking.
Public Outreach Committee: Integrates the mission of the task force into all advertising, print materials, event promotions, and Web presence. Also works to collaborate with local organizations to promote community engagement.
Strategic Planning and Protocol Committee: Responsible for making standard operating procedures in terms of conducting investigations, emergency response and safety plans, victim identification, victim intake and care planning.
