Human trafficking is not a victimless crime. Cases of human trafficking often include physical, sexual and mental abuse and present as domestic violence, robbery, sexual assault, or fraud. The Portland Police Bureau, in conjunction with other federal and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to deterring human trafficking activities. People who commit crimes as alleged in these arrests may not know whether the person they arrange to meet is being trafficked. The Human Trafficking Unit is working to eliminate instances of trafficking in our community.

The Portland Police Bureau Human Trafficking Unit has embedded Victim Advocates available for resources and services to those who are interested. There are also many community organizations that provide help to those affected by human trafficking. We encourage survivors of human trafficking to reach out to the Human Trafficking detail. Community members who believe they have information on Human Trafficking are also encourage to contact the Human Trafficking detail
