    • Georgia Bureau of Investigation - Human Trafficking in Georgia Time: 5:30p - 8:00p Location: Cisco Auditorium, Building C Details:

      The Department of Homeland Security (2017) notes that, "human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act" (para. 1). Human trafficking is both a serious crime and an egregious human rights violation, one that law enforcement agencies are combating constantly. According to the Department of Justice, Atlanta is one of fourteen cities in the United States with the highest rates of human trafficking (Yates, 2015). In 2012 alone, Georgia law enforcement agencies reported 190 cases of human trafficking, with cases often having more than one victim (Bailey & Wade, 2014). 

      The Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Human Trafficking unit is one of the main law enforcement agencies dealing with human trafficking within the state of Georgia. Since the creation of the unit in 2011, their efforts have resulted in the arrest of individuals involved in trafficking and the safe recovery of trafficking victims.

      Alpha Phi Sigma and the Criminal Justice Club are honored to host Brian Johnston, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, to discuss the state of human trafficking within Georgia and the efforts of the Human Trafficking unit to combat this heinous crime.
