We enhance efficiency and communication between law enforcement agencies to increase the speed and accuracy of intercepting traffickers. Our goal is to catch criminals faster to keep your kids safe.

Law enforcement are critical in eradicating human trafficking; however, their resources are stretched thin. Police departments are facing increased responsibilities, reduced budgets and extreme public scrutiny. They’re adapting to modern threats and concerns, and they need the tools to effectively do this.

One of the most valuable tools for law enforcement in effectively addressing the complex crime of human trafficking is the use of real-time actionable intelligence. However, this intelligence requires a significant workforce and comes at a substantial cost. These two factors make this type of intelligence inaccessible to many law enforcement agencies. Additionally, even if the agency has the resources, they lack the ability to see a comprehensive picture of a trafficker’s movement beyond their jurisdiction. NHTIC changes this.

NHTIC is designed to establish a team of trained and specialized intelligence analysts who proactively seek out, collect, and analyze intelligence relative to traffickers operating within the United States.  These analysts then share this intelligence with the appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies so that they react and recover more victims and prosecuting the offenders. To prove the effectiveness of the methodology, ATI conducted a 40-hour testing period. In just 40-hours with one analyst, NHTIC was able to identify and direct law enforcement to three victims of human trafficking. NHTIC is an overdue game changer in the fight to stop human trafficking quickly and efficiently.
