Law Enforcement Training
Trafficking.Tips offers Law Enforcement Personnel certified instructions for all levels of human trafficking investigations and victim response. Law Enforcement Personnel who complete our two-hour training receive continuing education training credits for their participation in the state of Connecticut. This also meets the training necessary for all Law Enforcement Personnel as required by Public Act 16-71 “An Act Concerning Human Trafficking.”
Trafficking.Tips provides interactive, cutting-edge, and effective tactics that promote more efficient, solid investigations, concrete leadership, and greater levels of victim care. All training models foster community trust, inclusive cultures, and respect.
Training programs can be customized to address the specific needs of each agency. Trafficking Tips provides a growing repository of information and guidance specifically for Law Enforcement personnel. This service is provided free of charge. If you have already attended one of our seminars, this is the section we referred to during the presentation.

“Thank you for your great work on behalf of children.”
— US Senator Richard Blumenthal
“How can we possibly thank you enough for your constant support during our recent investigation into Prostitution and Human Trafficking. Your suggestions and assumption of responsibility for the well being of one of our victims/witnesses is critical to our investigation. One of the most amazing things is that you said you would do specific things to care for the victim and then did them; a rare commodity.”
— Lucein St Germain, Commanding Officer, Connecticut Statewide Organized Crime Investigative Task Force

— Scott Wardingly, Lake County Florida Sheriff’s Office
“Ray, the fact of the matter is you always were and always will be my savior. Someone who saved me from myself and the brutality of the streets. Still to this day you protect me and watch over me. I can never repay the debt. Nor could I ever find someone I can confide in such as yourself. No one understands or is more compassionate than you to my needs and frustration over being victimized. These people who are so quick to judge and criticize on something they know nothing of. You truly do understand fully now the feeling of being victimized. I’m behind you all the way!!”
— “Marie” – Victim of Human Trafficking
“I had to call on Ray for assistance in locating one of our foster care girls that had run away. She had been missing for five days and three police departments were searching for her. Ray and his staff were able to locate her and she was rescued from the trafficker who already had her working on the streets. I am so impressed with the level of commitment of this gentle man and his humility as he works to make a difference in the lives of young vulnerable children.”
— Rosemarie Burton, President, Klingberg Family Centers
