 CENTRAL OKLAHOMA HUMAN     TRAFFICKING CONFERENCE                 Oklahoma City, April 13, 2011


This is not a simple awareness event or a fundraiser asking for money. This is a training conference on the issues of human trafficking for professionals to get their CEU's and learn how to identify possible trafficking victims, how to report, how to interdict, how to care for them, how to get justice for them and how to get your Agency, Chruch or Organization involved in making a difference right here in Oklahoma!

Training Tracks with specialized workshops will include:
  •  Law Enforcement Officers / Probation & Parole Officers / Security Officers & Private Investigators           (6 CLEET hours provided)
