About the Task Force

The Governor’s Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force was formed to marshal the resources of the State of Ohio to coordinate efforts to identify victims, create a coordinated law enforcement system to investigate and prosecute human trafficking crimes, and to provide the services and treatment necessary for victims to regain control of their lives.

Fourteen state agencies are members of the task force and work to identify the gaps and opportunities within Ohio’s systems to build a more comprehensive and coordinated response to human trafficking.

On January 29, 2021, Governor Mike DeWine signed Executive Order 2021-02D to expand the Governor’s Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force to include five new agencies to assist the task force in pursuing new, strategic, and comprehensive strategies to combat human trafficking.
