Entry Description

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence today signed one of his agenda items to add human trafficking to the Child In Need of Services (CHINS) code to allow the Department of Child Services (DCS) to intervene and serve children who are victims of human trafficking. SEA 305 is authored by Sen. Randy Head (R – Logansport) and Sen. Patricia Miller (R – Indianapolis).
