Newly appointed Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa has issued a new statewide law enforcement directive that would work to combat human trafficking in New Jersey. A new unit will be formed within New Jersey’s Division of Criminal Justice that will be devoted to finding sex and labor related human trafficking. This Unit will be charged with performing proactive, long-term sex and labor trafficking investigations in coordination with local, county, state and federal partners.

Chiesa stated that “human traffickers take those who are most vulnerable – whether because of their youth, immigration status, or lack of a network of family or community support – and steal their freedom, subjecting them to forced prostitution or labor. These victims of exploitation, degradation and torture are often hidden in the unlighted corners of our society. We intend to find them, help them and prosecute those responsible for enslaving them.”
