As an initiative of the Collaborative to End Human Trafficking, Greater Cleveland’s Coordinated Response to Human Trafficking is a multi-disciplinary group of agencies, organizations and businesses that work together to collaboratively address the complexities of this crime and to weave a safety net for those victimized by it.

Currently, Greater Cleveland's Coordinated Response to Human Trafficking is working to:

  • Create broad public awareness that human trafficking exists in Northeast Ohio, so that the public recognizes the red flags of human trafficking and knows whom to contact when the red flags are present. 
  • Train those in the hospitality and transportation industries regarding the red flags of human trafficking and provide them with the information about whom to contact when the red flags are present. 
  • Further develop the protocol and coordination among law enforcement and the social service agencies that provide victim support, from initial reports of a possible human trafficking situation through the resolution of the victim's circumstances and/or possible court proceedings.
