Gov. Baker to attend training conference for officers who investigate human trafficking


BROCKTON, Massachusetts — Gov. Charlie Baker is expected to join Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz and other officials during a training conference for law enforcement members investigating cases of human trafficking.

The district attorney's office says the daylong event on Thursday will focus on the commercial sexual exploitation of children.

It will include training for law enforcement officers on how to identify possible victims of human trafficking.

Baker is scheduled to attend the afternoon session of the conference in Brockton.

The state Attorney General's office, Brockton police and the Massachusetts Children's Alliance are also helping organize the event.

Cruz says law enforcement needs to adapt its techniques to keep up with human traffickers and spot the warning signs that someone is being exploited.
