CSEC: Advanced Human Trafficking and Crimes of Human Exploitation.
This course will look at case studies of Foreign National Trafficking, Labor Trafficking, Gang Trafficking, Domestic Sex Trafficking, Social Media Exploitation and Child Abuse materials with priority given to cases in Southern California. We will explore the victim vulnerability factors, recruiting methods, the grooming process and various types of recruitment and exploitation. We will look at a wide range of foreign national trafficking rings operating in Southern California and how they are similar and how they are different. We will do a comparative study of Gang trafficking. Also, we will address how predators use the latest technologies and sophisticated social media strategies to challenge law enforcement in crimes of child sexual exploitation.
