The purpose of this solicitation is to deliver a wide range of TTA services to local, state, and tribal jurisdictions, service providers receiving funding under the Enhanced Collaborative Model (ECM) Task Force to Combat Human Trafficking Program, and others as identified by OJP. TTA providers funded under this solicitation are expected to work in collaboration with other OJP-funded TTA programs that offer a range of services to support both crime victims and victim service providers.
The award made to NW3C is funded under FY 2020 Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Program which is designed to partner with the IACP and the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) will develop and implement the Traffic S.T.O.P (Signs to Observe and Prevent) program in select schools nationwide. The Traffic S.T.O.P. program builds on existing self-reliance and peer support with a concentric mentoring architecture to strengthen teen communities and promote awareness of human trafficking and child exploitation. School Resource Officers (SROs) will partner with their local ECM TF and work with high school students on the awareness, identification, and prevention of human trafficking and child exploitation. These students will then mentor their peers and elementary and middle school students, under the guidance of the SRO and local ECM TF. CA/NCF
