The purpose of this thesis is to understand how the perception of agencies that may interact with human trafficking affects protocols and procedures that are put in place. To answer this question, a qualitative study was conducted. I interviewed nine respondents who worked for five different agencies ranging from child services to the DA’s office. Respondents’ perception of human trafficking victims was in line with the literature. However, there appear to be specific gaps in Abilene when it comes to detecting and providing housing for victims of human trafficking.
