Human Trafficking Laws Get Stricter and Awareness Grows

CHTCS-Logo-For-SiteA leading organization in the fight against human trafficking has ranked New Jersey as one of two states with the nation’s best laws fighting this modern-day slavery.

The report evaluated state laws in 10 categories: labor and sex trafficking; investigative tools; law enforcement training; the presence of a human trafficking task force; the presence of a human trafficking hotline; safe harbor protection for exploited minors; lowered burden of proof for sex trafficking of minors; victim assistance access to civil damages; vacating convictions for sex trafficking victims; and asset forfeiture, which allows victims to receive restitution.
