The Cook County Sheriff’s Human Trafficking Response Team: A Law Enforcement Model

In February of 2009, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart’s Office launched its Human Trafficking Response Team (HTRT) to respond to the exploitation of women and girls in the sex trade and to reduce the demand for paid sex in Cook County.
