This reporting is mandatory pursuant to Article 2.305 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. If you reside in a county with a population of 50,000 or more and you are one of the following specifically identified entities, you MUST submit reports in accordance with Article 2.305:

Article 2.305 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure requires the above law enforcement and prosecutorial entities in counties with a population of 50,000 or more to submit human trafficking data to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) in the manner and form prescribed by the Attorney General. Reports are due to the OAG on April 1 and October 1 of each year.

This form MUST be submitted for EACH individual human trafficking offense. Please take your time to ensure that all fields on the form have been completed and provide an explanation for any fields that are not completed.

We encourage organizations to engage in internal discussions to determine the responsible party for these submissions to eliminate duplicative efforts and ensure continued compliance with the statute.

Please fill out ALL required contact information and check the box for “NO OFFENSE TO REPORT” to ensure compliance with the statute.

We encourage you to keep an internal copy of submissions for your records. If you have questions please review our Frequently Asked Questions about Human Trafficking Reporting or email us at [email protected].
