BOSTON (AP) _ State Attorney General Martha Coakley will be releasing a report on human trafficking in Massachusetts.
Coakley will join members of the Interagency Human Trafficking Policy Task Force in her Boston office Monday to detail the findings.
The report includes recommendations to state lawmakers about what they can do to combat and prevent trafficking.
The task force includes victim service workers, human trafficking survivors and representatives of law enforcement and academia.
The task force has been meeting since February 2012 to develop proposals to present to the Legislature.
In 2011, Gov. Deval Patrick signed into law a human trafficking bill designed to change the focus of police and prosecutors from targeting prostitutes to going after the men who pay for sex with them and the pimps who profit from the transactions.
