Human trafficking is one of the fastest-growing criminal enterprises in the world-- and it takes place right here in local California communities, with more than 70% of trafficked persons in California coming from within the United States. Proposition 35, known as the Californians Against Sexual Exploitation (CASE) Act, made several critical enhancements to California law to combat trafficking and exploitation. Among other important changes, the law mandates human trafficking training for law enforcement.
This video program fulfills the requirements of revised PC §13519.14 and Proposition 35. The goal of this training is to help peace officers recognize the indicators of human trafficking and know what actions to take.

• Preliminary Investigation
The 2010 "Human Trafficking Update" training video (#233) that may be in use by some agencies does not meet the new mandate(s) and has been removed from the POST Video Catalog.
The DVD-ROM video program offers two viewing modes and printable instructor and trainee documents:
Facilitated Group Course
Each segment features a short introduction, followed by scenarios with related questions and activities to assist in facilitating a group discussion. The facilitator has the option to play subject matter expert comments after the discussion to re-emphasize a training point or to ensure all topics are covered. A “Facilitator Guide” document (PDF) is included on the DVD-ROM for printout from a computer.
This viewing mode allows an individual trainee or a small group of trainees to view the training video without formal (classroom) facilitation by an instructor. Features the same scenarios and questions or activities as the “Facilitated Group Course” track. Individual viewers may view sample group discussions, followed by comments from subject matter experts that reiterate and reinforce the teaching points. A "Student Workbook" document (PDF) is included on the DVD-ROM for printout from a computer.
Additional "how to" instructions for facilitation and obtaining CPT credit are included on the main menu of the video.
