The IACP, the FBI and the Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, developed a training series to educate frontline officers on how to recognize and respond to victims of child sex trafficking. The videos are centered on the premise of:


                                            RECOGNIZE  RETHINK  RESPOND

Recognize the indicators / Rethink the situation / Respond appropriately and refer for investigation

The toolkit contains a series of training videos to be utilized for training within law enforcement agencies across the country:

  • Introduction (2:54)
  • Traffic Stop (12:05)
  • DV Call (12:10)
  • School (10:32)
  • Hotel (11:49)
  • Hospital (11:46)
  • Street Patrol (10:25)

This series of training videos depict sworn law enforcement officers demonstrating alternative responses to different types of scenarios involving child sex trafficking. In addition to the training videos, the toolkit includes:

  • Pre-training Instructions for Supervisors
  • Discussion Guide
  • Tip Card 
  • Fact Sheet
