Trafficking In Georgia
The State of Georgia is taking a comprehensive and aggressive approach to fighting human trafficking across the state, bringing together a coalition of law enforcement, state agencies, non-profit and for-profit organizations, faith institutions and subject matter experts – all dedicated to eliminating this dangerous threat to Georgians.
With Governor Kemp's creation of the Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education (GRACE) Commission, the approval of funding for the State's first-ever Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit under the State Attorney General's Office, the statewide collaborative work of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council's Human Trafficking Task Force, and legislation aimed at severely punishing criminals and protecting victims, the State is moving to end human trafficking – an estimated $290 million industry annually in Georgia, according to Georgia Cares.
In addition to these efforts and the work of state and federal law enforcement agencies, State employees also have an important role to play in the fight against human trafficking.
