Alameda County MAP1193 – Stop Human Trafficking

Alameda County, CA
Program Year: 2017

Abstract:
Enacted in 2012, California Senate Bill 1193 requires certain businesses - such as mass transit stops and bars to display a “Stop Human Trafficking” poster in full view of the public and its employees. Businesses that do not comply with the law are subject to fines. After intensive design work and six months of development, the Alameda County District Attorney's Office (ACDAO) and Information Technology Department (ACITD) collaboratively launched a mobile web application to aid in the implementation of the California law Senate Bill 1193. ACDAO and ACITD created MAP1193 to implement this law, educate businesses, and mobilize community members. No other county in California has created a protocol to implement SB1193. Currently, anyone who is visiting an Alameda County business affected by SB1193 can report the business compliance utilizing his or her smart phone. Once businesses are marked out of compliance, the ACDAO can follow-up with those businesses with the Consumer Fraud Inspector Division. If businesses remain out of compliance, ACDAO can charge the fine. All fine proceeds will be used to maintain the app and provide direct services to victims of human trafficking. Other jurisdictions such as Contra Costa County have utilized this website for their hosted Community Day of Action, proving MAP1193 (www.map1193.org) enables enforcement agencies to implement this legislation efficiently and effectively.
