23 Sep: Cunningham Bill To Expand Public, Law Enforcement Outreach On Human Trafficking Advances

TRENTON – A bill sponsored by Senator Sandra Bolden Cunningham which would direct the Attorney General to publicize information about human trafficking hotlines and would mandate law enforcement training on responding to the needs of victims of human trafficking was unanimously approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

“For the victims of human trafficking, life can be a nightmare of abuse, forced servitude and ever-constant fear and intimidation,” said Senator Cunningham, D-Hudson. “Many of these folks have come to the United States looking for opportunity, or have fled broken homes looking for a new beginning, and instead have found victimization and slavery. We need to give them the tools to break the cycle of servitude, and give the law enforcement community the training to meet the unique needs of these people.”
