The purpose of the FY 2018 Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force To Combat Human Trafficking program is to assist communities in developing effective and sustainable multidisciplinary task forces that will implement victim-centered and coordinated approaches to identifying victims of sex and labor trafficking, addressing the individualized needs of victims through services, and investigating and prosecuting sex and labor trafficking cases (as well as the purchasers of commercial sex) at the local, state, tribal, and federal levels. With this award, the International Institute St Louis will work in partnership with the St. Louis County Police Department to enhance the activities of the Human Trafficking Task Force of Eastern Missouri.
