Technical Assistance

The CSE Institute provides technical assistance to courts, as well as public and private attorneys representing the interests of victims of CSE in the criminal and civil justice systems. We also assist medical professionals and law enforcement in properly addressing the needs of survivors. 

We have provided technical assistance to both law enforcement and non-governmental organizations and have engaged in extensive policy education and advocacy for the recently passed state legislation SB851, “Safe Harbor.”

Additionally, the CSE Institute continues to collaborate with other anti-trafficking organizations to develop informational presentations that reach regional and national audiences and remains an avid contributor to several statewide anti-trafficking work groups.
