The Human Trafficking and Transnational/Organized Crime Section (HTTOC) was established in 2016 to assist prosecutions of Human Trafficking cases across the State. HTTOC is currently comprised of a team of seven criminal attorneys, two civil attorneys, one policy attorney, three legal assistants, a victim advocate, a policy specialist, and a legal analyst.
The OAG- HTTOC section assists law enforcement and prosecutors on human trafficking cases, pursues civil litigation against traffickers and businesses, assists victims with resources, engages the public through training, develops initiatives to enhance the state’s support and coordination of human trafficking efforts, and facilitates collaboration between federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutors. We have a 24/7 duty line: 512-936-1938, to answer questions from law enforcement and prosecutors as trafficking cases are encountered across the state.
As a section, we will continue to focus on criminal investigations and prosecutions. Our prosecutors serve on a rotation schedule and are “on-call” for active duty to answer any questions and assist in trafficking investigations. We are committed to strengthening our partnerships across the state and working together to quickly address the needs of prosecutors, law enforcement, and investigators as we work together to combat this crime.
