Human Trafficking Resources

The New Jersey Human Trafficking Task Force (NJHTTF), convened by the Attorney General and the Division of Criminal Justice, describes trafficking in persons as modern day slavery. According to the NJHTTF brochure, "Victims of human trafficking, men, women and children, can be exploited for the purpose of commercial sexual activity, including prostitution and pornography, as well as many types of forced labor, including domestic servitude and migrant agricultural work. Traffickers lure and control their victims through the use of force, fraud, or coercion, and employ techniques such as physical and psychological abuse, false employment offers, document holding, and isolation.” (NJHTTF Brochure - [pdf])

Human trafficking is a rapidly growing criminal industry. Due to New Jersey’s dense population and prominent location along the Interstate 95 corridor, our State is considered particularly vulnerable to the proliferation of human trafficking. It is important to raise awareness about this issue, learn how to identify potential trafficking situations and understand the impact human trafficking has on those affected.
