The Office of the New Mexico Attorney General Human Trafficking Task Force is a federally funded collaborative taskforce consisting of local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies, prosecutorial agencies, and service providers from around the state. The sole purpose of the New Mexico Human Trafficking Task Force is to implement a collaborative approach to combating all forms of human trafficking within New Mexico- sex trafficking and labor trafficking- of foreign nationals and U.S. citizens (of all sexes and ages). This multi-disciplinary task force focuses on a victim-centered approach to identify victims of all types of human trafficking, address the individualized needs of victims through quality services, and investigate and prosecute human trafficking cases at the local, state, tribal, and federal levels.

The New Mexico State Statute defines Human Trafficking as a person knowingly:
(1) recruiting, soliciting, enticing, transporting or obtaining by any means another person with the intent or knowledge that force, fraud or coercion will be used to subject the person to labor, services or commercial sexual activity; (2) recruiting, soliciting, enticing, transporting or obtaining by any means a person under the age of eighteen years with the intent or knowledge that the person will be caused to engage in commercial sexual activity; or (3) benefiting, financially or by receiving anything of value, from the labor, services or commercial sexual activity of another person with the knowledge that force, fraud or coercion was used to obtain the labor, services or commercial sexual activity.

Confronting the Issues to Make New Mexico Families Safer

This Human Trafficking training video will help educators identify signs of possible human trafficking, and provide recommendations for how to respond to trafficking cases. This training video will also discuss risk factors that make students susceptible to exploitation, and identifies promising practices for prevention.

The second part of this training video includes the introduction of a new (free) “incident response” tool sponsored by the Office of the New Mexico Attorney General Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. The new tool will equip educators with the answers to questions like: How should you respond when a technology-related incident happens in your school? When should you involve law enforcement? This interactive Incident Investigation tool will help educators find the answers-by walking through a series of detailed questions about the incident and recommending appropriate next steps.
