Southern Arizona Anti-Trafficking Unified Response Network

Human trafficking, also known as trafficking of persons or modern-day slavery, is a crime that involves the exploitation of a person for the purpose of compelled sex or labor. This form of slavery affects millions of people around the world every day. Human trafficking is happening in Southern Arizona.

The Southern Arizona Anti-Trafficking Unified Response Network (SAATURN) is working with the community to address this important issue. SAATURN is a grant-funded project of the Tucson Police Department and CODAC, in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Homeland Security Investigations, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office. SAATURN provides comprehensive services to survivors and supports our partners who proactively investigate, identify, apprehend and prosecute those engaged in human trafficking.
