Human Trafficking Task Force


The Human Trafficking Task Force of the Missouri Attorney General's Office is designed and structured with an emphasis on law enforcement, so that we are creating an environment in which law enforcement can identify, respond to and investigate human trafficking cases with maximum impact. We believe that law enforcement is at the center of what is needed to address and eradicate human trafficking in Missouri, but cannot do it alone. In order to be successful, we strive to have:

  • A supportive network of service providers available to assist victims
  • Coordination and utilization of data, research and intelligence
  • Courts that are trained and equipped with laws strong enough to ensure convictions
  • Training for victim identification available in key sectors like schools, hospitals and the transportation sector
  • A functional and efficient reporting system (hotline)
  • An active and robust community that is working to prevent human trafficking through addressing vulnerabilities and stopping demand for forced labor and commercial sex

Our Human Trafficking Task Force is structured and set up to:

  • Ensure that we are serving the entire state across both urban and rural areas with efficiency and consistent quality
  • Provide a holistic and comprehensive response through coordination of services, trainings, intelligence sharing and more
  • Engage multiple agencies in a multi-disciplinary, coordinated strategy rather than a traditional model with everyone operating in a silo
  • Maximize resources
