Policy Committee

The Policy Subcommittee of the Arizona Human Trafficking Council develops policy recommendations to improve the state’s response to human trafficking. The subcommittee reviews current policy and develops recommendations on improving the quality of care for victims within state agencies as well as strengthening prosecution for traffickers and purchasers.

2018 Highlights:

In 2018, members were encouraged to review current policy and practices to determine where prevention methods, victim support, and prosecution of traffickers and purchasers could be strengthened. The subcommittee engaged stakeholders and relevant judicial, social and victim service programs statewide to better understand how the bolstering of systemic policies and protocols within public, private and non-profit sectors could better serve vulnerable populations across Arizona.

The subcommittee continued to work to recommend policy change for human trafficking as it intersects with:

● prevention in schools through the inclusion of a human trafficking awareness curriculum in the continuing education requirements for school-based professions; and
● engagement of policy makers with the ongoing goal of learning opportunities on the issue of human trafficking
