Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $170,000)

Under this award, Miami-Dade County will further enhance and operate a victim centered human trafficking task force in conjunction with the U.S. Attorney's Office, Federal law enforcement, and their Office for Victims of Crime Human Trafficking Services provider to identify and rescue victims of human trafficking, proactively investigate human trafficking, and prosecute traffickers. The primary goal of this program is to identify and rescue foreign victims of trafficking through a victim centered, proactive investigation strategy. The secondary goal is the interdiction of trafficking and the successful prosecution of traffickers.

The Miami-Dade Police Department will use the 2010 Human Trafficking Task Force Initiative funds to support officer overtime and training for the Miami-Dade Human Trafficking Task Force (MDHTTF). Specifically, MDHTTF's comprehensive strategy to bring down criminals and care for victims includes a first responder agency network which works at the "street level" to increase victim identification. The project goals are to increase the identification and rescue of human trafficking foreign victims through proactive investigations and successful prosecuting of traffickers. CA/NCF
