The U.S. Embassy, in coordination with U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, provided training on Forensic Interviewing Techniques for Victims of Human Trafficking. The training was provided to over 65 Government of Belize officials from five different departments namely Human Services, Police, Immigration, Customs and Excise, and Public Prosecutions. The three-day training course was held at the Biltmore Hotel from October 31 to November 2, 2017.

The U.S. Embassy continues to support the Government of Belize in its effort to reduce human trafficking. Victim Assistance Specialist Instructors from U.S. Homeland Security Investigations and the Human Trafficking Institute shared best practices on how to identify and successfully interact with victims of human trafficking.

Since 2008, the U.S. Embassy, through the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) office and the CARSI program, has committed more than US $42 million in assistance to Belize to promote good governance, increase prosperity, and enhance citizen security. The U.S. Embassy is committed to working with the Government of Belize to identify, prosecute, and eliminate human trafficking in Belize.
