Continued Presence Resource Guide for Submitting Law Enforcement Agencies and Civil Attorneys [open pdf - 824KB]
From the Document: "Decades of successful human trafficking investigations and prosecutions all point to using a victim-centered approach as a reason for their success. A victim-centered approach places equal value on the investigation and prosecution of human traffickers and on the identification and stabilization of victims of human trafficking. It means considering the victim's rights, safety, and interests throughout the investigation and prosecution. The goal of this approach is to focus the investigation and prosecution around the victim while minimizing stress, harm, and trauma. Requesting CP [Continued Presence] for noncitizen trafficking victims in an investigation, prosecution, or federal civil action as described in this Resource Guide is a critical element of victim-centered law enforcement."
