INL seeks an implementer who will partner with the Ghana Police Service (Anti-Human Trafficking Unit and Police-Prosecutors), Ghana Immigration Service (Anti-Human Smuggling and Trafficking Unit and GIS Prosecutors), and the Attorney General’s Office (State Attorneys) to improve knowledge, policies, procedures, and interagency coordination on how to detect, investigate, document, charge, and prosecute cases of trafficking in persons, with emphasis on applying Ghana’s anti-trafficking law.
