Human trafficking investigators and prosecutors know that victims do not typically cooperate with investigations with testifying being often traumatic, disincentivizing their participation in the process. Due to this knowledge, this workshop will provide human trafficking investigative best practices to ensure victims’ needs are met while aiming to conduct investigations and prosecutions of offenders without victim cooperation. Strategies for shifting investigations from "finding" victims to identifying offenders to ensure the victim is not necessary for investigation and prosecution will be discussed. Additionally, how to conduct human trafficking operations using minimal funding and manpower, leaning on technology, artificial intelligence, and both free and low-cost technical tools designed to support human trafficking investigators will also be discussed.
