Southwest Florida was one of the first areas in Florida which organized in 2005 to fight human trafficking. The Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking has created organized efforts to combat this crime.
The mission of the Coalition is to develop a partnership of the community, service providers, law enforcement and the media to combat Human Trafficking through education, coordination, outreach and training.
Consistent with that mission, it has been working closely with FDLE and the coalitions partners in providing victim services over the past 36 months and assisting in the investigation of a case involving numerous victims, many of whom were able to provide information to the investigators at FDLE. We have served as the liaison between the victims and law enforcement.
Coalition members are known as leaders in the fight against trafficking. They have offered their services as media contacts and liaisons. The Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking, previously known as the SWFL Human Trafficking Coalition is proud to announce that through our partnerships and collaboration, success in bringing justice to victims of human trafficking has been attained in our communities.
The efforts of the Coalition and the Florida Department of Law enforcement has led to the prevention, protection, and successful prosecution of sex trafficking.
