Colorado Department of Public Safety HumanTrafficking-related Training

Concerning human trafficking prevention training by the department of public safety.
2019 Regular Session
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

Human trafficking prevention training - division of criminal justice - gifts, grants, and donations for training - school safety resource center materials and training. The act makes the division of criminal justice in the department of public safety (division) a resource to provide human trafficking prevention training (training) to law enforcement agencies and entities that provide services to human trafficking victims. The training may include:

  • Train-the-trainer programs;
  • Direct trainings; and
  • Online training programs.

The training may be provided to law enforcement agencies, organizations that provide direct services to human trafficking victims, school personnel and parents or guardians of students, and any other organization, agency, or group that would benefit from such training. The training must be developed in consultation with the Colorado human trafficking council (council). When considering requests for training, the division should give priority to requests from areas of the state that have limited access to training resources. The division may accept gifts, grants, and donations and shall not provide training until it receives sufficient money to cover the costs of implementing and providing the training.

Beginning in 2020, the council's annual human trafficking report must include an update on the training provided. The act repeals the training provisions on September 1, 2023, and requires a sunset review prior to the repeal.

The act requires the Colorado school safety resource center to include awareness and prevention of human trafficking in the materials and training that it provides.
