Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says the state's official anti-human trafficking group is meeting for the first time this week in its newly minted role.
The Kansas Human Trafficking Advisory Board was recognized in a new law passed earlier this year as the state's official group dedicated to fighting human trafficking. It was first organized in January 2010 as the Attorney General's Human Trafficking Advisory Board.
The board will meet at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Department for Children and Families Learning Center in Topeka. Members include representatives of the governor's office, attorney general's office, cabinet agencies, law enforcement and social service organizations.
