MANHATTAN — Federal, state and local prosecutors are sponsoring a two-day conference on human trafficking next week in northeast Kansas.
U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister plans to open the conference Tuesday morning at the Manhattan Conference Center. His office says about 200 people are registered.
McAllister’s office is co-sponsoring the event along with Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office, the Riley County attorney’s office, the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center and the Midwest Criminal Justice Institute at Wichita State University.
Speakers from the Human Trafficking Unit in the U.S. Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division plan to discuss working with trafficking victims during a presentation on the federal response to human trafficking.
