This online guide is a resource designed to support established task forces and provides guidance to agencies that are forming task forces. Its purpose is to assist in the development and day-to-day operations of an anti-human trafficking task force and to provide fundamental guidance for effective task force operations. The multidisciplinary task force response model (i.e., of agencies from various disciplines working together) is encouraged by the U.S. Department of Justice, and is considered worldwide as a "best practice" in the response to human trafficking. The content has been carefully screened and evaluated by anti-human trafficking victim service providers, law enforcement officials and prosecutors. It is a living document; as new practices and resources that have proven helpful to these Task Forces become available, OVC's Training and Technical Assistance Center will incorporate them to enhance the effectiveness of this Guide.
