Florida’s Human Trafficking Screening Tool: Effectively Identifying Victims

Human trafficking response has been in the forefront in regards to child welfare for the past several years. The Florida Legislature required the development of a screening tool for the identification of human trafficking victims. This program will review the tool development process, the training components, implementation across the child welfare and juvenile justice programs, as well as data collected and outcomes. This is a non-proprietary tool that can be shared with attendees.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will gain an understanding of Florida child welfare legislation and its impact on developing the Florida Human Trafficking Screening Tool (HTST).
  • Participants will be better informed on the history of attempts to identify this cross over population in child welfare and juvenile justice.
  • Participants will gain a better understanding of the impact of data collection in the development and implementation of the HTST tool.
  • Participants will learn how critical the collaborative model across state agencies, juvenile justice and child welfare, and non-governmental providers (NGO) was in the development and implementation of the HTST.
  • Participants will learn about current data collection and outcomes related to the HTST.

    60 Mins
    Keynote
    Executive

    This talk’s presentation is to finding innovative solutions and action steps to global and public health and mental health issues effecting vulnerable girls. An integrated, multidisciplinary and community base approach with an in-depth emphasis on the psychology of public health and preventive healthcare. Participants come away able to integrate learning outcomes into a cross-the-board overview of community based public health issues. To maximize usefulness a focus on culturally relevant evidence-based approach to public health has 4 components: identify the problem, identify risk factors or if possible, contributory causes, consider evidence-based recommendations for potential interventions to control or eliminate the problem, and develop a strategy for application of one or more public health and public mental health interventions into practice and with a monitoring and evaluation of outcomes.

    My name is Joann Alicea and since 2011 I have been lobbying the US Treasury Financial Crimes Enforcement Network known as FinCEN to update the Suspicious Activity Report known as the SAR for a Human Trafficking Checkbox Category. The SAR is used by all US Financial Institutions to report on illicit activity by simply following the money. Please see my article published in the 23rd Edition of the FinCEN SAR Activity Review Trends, Tips and Issues entitled FinCEN SAR Checkbox for Human Trafficking by Joann Alicea; Page 67; Article URL listed below:
    http://www.fincen.gov/news_room/rp/files/sar_tti_23.pdf
    Can you please help me get this accomplished? Updating the SAR for a Human Trafficking Checkbox will do so much to help rescue victims, arrest traffickers by simply following the money trail in reporting the horrific crime of human trafficking through the SAR Process to Law Enforcement.
