Law Enforcement Working Group

Law Enforcement Working Group

The law enforcement working group is composed of agencies that meet regularly (usually once a month) to develop data-informed human trafficking risk assessments, share intelligence, identify potential targets, attend specialized training, and strategize ongoing or future investigations and prosecutions. In many meetings, a local or federal prosecutor runs through a list or case log of matters at various stages in the legal process in order to de-conflict and coordinate investigations, and follow up on cases already pending in court or the grand jury. It is chaired by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

If you are a law enforcement agent or officer and are interested in joining this working group, or are an existing member who would like details about this particular work group meeting agenda, please reach out to the Task Force at info@nolatrafficking.org.
