Resource Overview

A comprehensive training curriculum on Human Trafficking developed by IADLEST and funded by the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services of the U.S. Department of Justice is available for immediate download for the 50 P.O.S.T.s and 700 training academies in the U.S. and all tribal law enforcement. IADLEST invested two years of research to understand the current state of law enforcement training as it relates to trafficking and developed this curriculum as a result. 

Trafficking is a heinous, cowardly crime perpetrated on the most vulnerable in society. Human trafficking, an international issue, takes a terrible toll on victims and survivors, and places unprecedented demands on law enforcement. This curriculum fills a gap by creating a uniform standard for training and consists of three components: A model PowerPoint including embedded videos, an Instructor Guide, and a Participant Guide. This NCP certified and nationally recognized curriculum counts toward in-service credits in 36 states.

The materials are considered “police sensitive” and you must log in to NLEARN to access them. All NLEARN services are FREE to law enforcement and academy personnel.  If you do not yet have a NLEARN login go here to apply: NLEARN Application
