New laws to curb human trafficking

July 1 marks the effective date of major laws enacted this past legislative session as part of a nationwide campaign to fight human trafficking.
“We have made major improvements since 2011 to address human trafficking and continue to lead the nation in these efforts,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown).
New laws regarding human trafficking taking effect next month will provide four additional Tennessee Bureau of Investigation special agents to train law enforcement and other officials in identifying, investigating and prosecuting human trafficking. These special agents will also train first responders and caseworkers to find services and assist human trafficking victims.
