Abstract : Human Trafficking (HT) is the modern day form of slavery. In 2000, the United States joined the worldwide efforts and made the commitment to combat HT with passing of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). In 2003, they adopted the world approach to combating HT through the 3P paradigm of prevention, protection, and prosecution. Since being established, the TVPA has undergone revisions to expand the authority, punishments, and scope for law enforcement to enforce the laws of the TVPA. This thesis looks at law enforcement efforts over time to determine how effective they are in applying the protections and enforcing the laws of the TVPA.
