Reporting Trafficking Victimization to Law Enforcement

Important Update: The T Final Rule was released on April 30, 2024, updating all T visa regulations. These changes will be effective starting August 28, 2024. As a result, our resources may be temporarily out of date.

CAST is actively working on updating all our trainings, advisories, and guides to reflect the new T visa regulations. We appreciate your patience during this transition period and encourage you to review the new regulations while we update our resources.

Thank you for your understanding.

Target Audience

This toolkit is for use by attorneys and legal representatives preparing to help a trafficking survivor report their victimization to law enforcement. The toolkit addresses the T visa law enforcement cooperation requirement in detail and reviews important considerations that legal advocates should discuss with their survivor client prior to engaging with law enforcement.

If you are a survivor pursuing a T visa or are not an attorney or accredited representative, please connect with an attorney for assistance.
