Description
 
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA) and its 2003, 2005, and 2008 reauthorizations are the first comprehensive federal legislation to combat human trafficking and to assist trafficking victims. Under the TVPA, human trafficking has occurred if a person was induced to perform labor or a commercial sex act through force, fraud, or coercion. Any person under age 18 who performs a commercial sex act is considered a victim of human trafficking, regardless of whether force, fraud, or coercion were present. The Trafficking of Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2005 (P.L. 109-164) requires biennial reporting on human trafficking, using available data from state and local authorities. In response to this requirement, the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) funded the creation of the Human Trafficking Reporting System (HTRS), which provides data on human trafficking incidents investigated between Jan. 1, 2007, and Sept. 30, 2008. This report is the first in a series that will describe the number and characteristics of suspected human trafficking investigations and their outcomes in the U.S. Data in this report represent a snapshot of the investigations opened by 38 federally funded human trafficking task forces.
