Defense Department Releases Training, Resources To Help Combat Trafficking in Persons

The U.S. Department of Defense, where I served for many years, first as an enlisted teenage sailor, and later as a Defense Department civilian, released a training toolkit for service chaplains to combat human trafficking.   


In late December, President Joe Biden proclaimed January as National Human Trafficking Prevention Month and urged every American to learn how to identify signs of trafficking. The Defense Department continues its efforts to prevent and eradicate this horrific crime.


Human trafficking deprives millions of people worldwide of their freedom. Through innovative training and resources, the Defense Department Combating Trafficking in Persons office focuses on efforts to prevent human trafficking. CTIP offers training and awareness resources to DOD's 3.4 million civilian and military personnel.

DOD CTIP Chaplains Training and Toolkit

Chaplains play a vital role in the fight against human trafficking. Often, chaplains are the first responders to victims, survivors, parents and other service members who have suffered because of human trafficking. The new specialized CTIP chaplains' training and companion toolkit focus on loss of belief, survivor's guilt, moral injury and other spiritual issues related to human trafficking.
