While carrying out anti human trafficking activities, several good initiatives undertaken by many police officials in the various states came to light.

Through a series of training programmes, the project will raise the awareness of Law Enforcement Officers (police & prosecutors) on the problem of human trafficking and further build up their capacity to better investigate the crime and prosecute the offenders perpetrating such crime. A few Anti Human Trafficking Units (AHTUs) are also proposed to be developed or strengthened at the state level in the selected states under this project.
