dc.description.abstract The Louisiana Trafficking Report is a brief survey of the current state of knowledge regarding the forms, prevalence, and sources of trafficking in the New Orleans metro area. The report synthesizes the information we have on trafficking-related legislation, arrests, cases, and response…The report is fueled by a series of guiding questions that arise any time human trafficking is discussed in the region: what do we know about the prevalence, scope, and forms of trafficking found in Louisiana? What are we doing to prevent and respond to it? What can we do to improve our response? We turned to service providers, social workers, journalists, law enforcement, local and state officials, and researchers to begin to uncover the answers we may have to these pressing questions. As we asked stakeholders in Southern Louisiana these questions, we found that: There are indicators that suggest that trafficking is indeed a significant problem in Louisiana, however, there is little official data kept regarding trafficking that we can study for statistical purposes. We have rapidly increased our legal, law enforcement, and service provider capacity to address trafficking in the last five years, [but] there are critical impediments to effectively assisting the victims that need to be addressed.
