Combating Trafficking in Persons Program Management Office Resources
Human trafficking is a crime in the United States and globally. The Defense Department is committed to ending this human rights violation through the Combating Trafficking in Persons program.
Human trafficking includes sex trafficking, labor trafficking (also called forced labor) and child soldiering. Though it may seem as if these abuses happen only in faraway places, trafficking in persons occurs in the United States as well. Here are some ways the military community can do its part to prevent human trafficking:
- Raise awareness of the signs and indicators of trafficking.
- Understand the root causes that create risk for vulnerable populations.
- Avoid prohibited activities.
- Stay informed through the CTIP Program Management Office website, newsletter and resources to learn more about Combating Trafficking in Persons in the Defense Department.
- Know where to go for help and where to refer persons seeking help for trafficking. This includes:
- Going through your local Defense Department Inspector General’s Office or calling the hotline at 800-424-9098
- Calling the hotlines for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children or National Human Trafficking
The first step is learning about CTIP. You can explore the resources provided on this page, or visit the program webpage, which provides information, training and resources.
Take the following courses to learn more about human trafficking:
