Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. It is the exploitation of men, women, and children for forced labor or sex by a third-party for profit or gain.

Texas is on the forefront of combating this hideous crime. In 2016 — in one of his first major initiatives — Attorney General Paxton formed the Human Trafficking and Transnational Organized Crime Section (HTTOC), tasked with combating human trafficking across our state.

The Human Trafficking and Transnational Organized Crime Section (HTTOC) is fighting to end human trafficking in the State of Texas through aggressive criminal prosecution and civil actions to hold offenders accountable. Our section also aims to raise public awareness about the threat Human Trafficking presents to our state by providing training, educating lawmakers and partnering with community stakeholders.

CLE and TCOLE credit will be given to those attending this one day event. The CEU course number and reporting information will be available on the agenda page of this website.
