dc.description Research Brief en_US
dc.description.abstract The Vera Institute of Justice (Vera) completed a two-year study, Improving Trafficking Victim Identification. The study created, field tested, and validated the first-ever screening tool that can reliably identify adult and minor victims of sex and labor trafficking, both U.S.- and foreign-born. The tool is a statistically validated 30-topic questionnaire designed to elicit evidence of trafficking victimization. Vera also researched the best way to conduct interviews with potential victims in order to facilitate trust between interviewers and respondents. With national dissemination, this screening tool should lead to better identification of trafficking victims and improved responses to victims by law enforcement, other legal professionals, and service providers in various types of agencies and settings. A full technical report on the study is available on Vera’s website at www.vera.org/out-of-the-shadows....This brief summarizes the research’s essential findings and policy implications and presents ideas for putting the screening tool into practice.
