HB18-1115 - Department of Public Safety Human Trafficking-related Training

Concerning the provision of training materials related to human trafficking by the department of public safety.

The bill requires the division of criminal justice to provide human trafficking training to law enforcement agencies and entities that provide services to human trafficking victims. The training may include:

  • Train-the-trainer programs;
  • Direct trainings; and
  • Online training programs.

The training may be provided to law enforcement agencies, organizations that provide direct services to human trafficking victims, school personnel and parents or guardians of students, and any other organization, agency, or group that would benefit from such training. The training must be developed in consultation with the Colorado human trafficking council. When considering requests for training, the division should give priority to requests from areas of the state that have limited access to training resources. Beginning in 2019, the council's annual human trafficking report must include an update on the trainings provided.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
