WHEN A POLICE OFFICER MEETS A SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIM,
WHAT STANDS IN THE WAY OF HER RESCUE?

1. The victim may have been threatened with violence and retaliation against her family by her trafficker if she talks to the police.

2. Victims are manipulated to not trust the police.  International victims often come from societies with heavy police corruption.  This affects how they see American police.

3. Help is in front of the victim, but she can be paralyzed by fear and uncertainty. She also might not speak English. Communication between the victim and the police officer breaks down.

THE RESULT IS THE VICTIM IS NOT RESCUED.  THE TRAFFICKER STILL HAS POWER.

BUT IT'S NOT OVER.  YOU CAN SHIFT THE POWER BACK TO THE VICTIM.
