Survivors of Human Trafficking Support Act.

Abstract

Under existing law, human trafficking is a crime and law enforcement officers who are assigned field and investigative duties are required to complete minimum training pertaining to the handling of human trafficking complaints. Existing law generally provides support services for individuals who are survivors of human trafficking, including public social services and address confidentiality, as specified. Existing law authorizes each county to establish an interagency sexual assault response team. Existing law requires each county with a sexual assault response team to meet certain requirements. This bill would require a county that has an interagency sexual assault response team to establish a survivor review board, for the purpose of soliciting, accepting, and reviewing feedback from survivors regarding their experience with service providers, as specified. The bill would require this board to include certain members, including survivors of violence, and would require counties to compensate survivors of violence who are members of the board for their time in the same manner as members of other county boards who are required to be survivors of violence. The bill would require this board to meet at least once every two months to review feedback, develop recommendations in response to feedback, and to respond to any feedback in writing, as specified. The bill would prohibit information shared with this board from being shared with immigration officials. Existing law establishes the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training to prescribe selection and training standards for peace officers. Existing law requires the commission to develop training curriculum in specified areas and to develop model policies that may be used by local law enforcement agencies, including, model policies for investigations of missing persons, elder and dependent adult abuse, and hate crimes. This bill would require the commission to, by no later than June 1, 2026, develop guidelines for interacting with survivors of human trafficking. The bill would require each law enforcement agency to, by no later than December 1, 2026, adopt a written policy for interacting with survivors of human trafficking based on the guidelines developed by the commission. By requiring local agencies to adopt a new policy, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
