GREG BRISTOL - Human Trafficking Investigations by Child Protective Services

Child Protective Service (CPS) Investigators investigate claims of child abuse and neglect.  They have the difficult task of figuring out what happened and predicting what will happen in the future.  Training CPS Investigators on what human trafficking is will significantly increase the number of human trafficking investigations referred to local police agencies that CPS works with.
