DHS Launches New Center for Countering Human Trafficking

US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has opened the Center for Countering Human Trafficking, the US government’s first-ever integrated law enforcement operations centre directly supporting federal criminal investigations, victim assistance efforts, intelligence analysis, and outreach and training activities related to human trafficking and forced labor.

The centre, which has been operational since early September, is based in Washington and led by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The centre will be staffed with law enforcement officials from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and across DHS, as well as subject matter experts and support staff from 16 DHS components—all focused on the “4 Ps” of the center’s mission: prevention, protection, prosecution and partnerships.
