Governor Signs Waterman’s Human Trafficking Bill



Governor Pence signed legislation Thursday to expand resources for human trafficking investigations.

The bill, authored by State Senator John Waterman of Shelburn, gives the Indiana Attorney General the same authority as a law enforcement agency to access and maintain information regarding violations of the human trafficking statute.

The law also permits the attorney general to assist with the investigation and prosecution of human trafficking violations.

The law takes effect July 1st.
