Bill to Crack Down on Human Trafficking Moves to Governor

DENVER — Today, the Senate unanimously approved Senator Kevin Priola's to strengthen law enforcement tools against human trafficking.

HB 17-1040 expands interception of the communications of human traffickers when probable cause of human trafficking exists. 

"Since 2007, there have been nearly 2,000 calls reporting human trafficking in our state," said Priola. "Colorado is a hub for one of the most atrocious human rights violations of our time, and it's happening on our watch. We have to act now to give law enforcement every possible tool to put an end to this heart breaking tragedy."

House Bill 1040 now moves to the governor's desk for approval.
