Standards of Service and Mandated Reporting

Human Trafficking Commission Standards of Service (2022)

The North Carolina Human Trafficking Commission provides these Standards for the purpose of defining the values and expectations that should guide professional conduct and service provision for any organization in our state that works with victims / survivors of human trafficking.

Human Trafficking Mandated Reporting and Agency Response

The purpose of this primer is to explain North Carolina reporting laws as they apply to human trafficking so that any person can understand when they are required to make a report, how to make a report, and where the report must be made. A brief explanation of how an agency receiving a report handles the report is provided. This primer is not meant to be a tool for how to screen for human trafficking. Designed to be user friendly, this primer includes a general definitions section, mandated reporting sections separated by juvenile and adult victims or survivors of human trafficking and by the agency to which the report is made.
