Mississippi Has a New Human Trafficking Division

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation has formed a new human trafficking division. After a bill designed to combat human trafficking was passed during this year’s legislative session the state department of public safety immediately began seeking additional funding sources to support a state-wide effort to thwart human trafficking in Mississippi. The bill also established additional protections for victims and mandated specific training for law enforcement to help spot and stop acts of trafficking. An $800,000 federal grant will support MBI’s enforcement role in investigating and solving human trafficking crimes.
