The exodus road Intervention teams use best practices and standard operating procedures that emphasize safety – for themselves, our partners in law enforcement, and the human trafficking victims we work together to free. We maintain our level of excellence through strict vetting, consistent training, and strict protocols for investigations.

All teams and investigators operate under the standards as outlined in the TER Investigative Manual, a document that has been developed after nearly a decade of international investigative work into human trafficking crime. This manual is evaluated annually and contains input from our front-line teams. It is approved by the Ethics Committee of the TER Board.

Additionally, active operations are always conducted in police partnerships and with a team (never an individual) approach. Our investigators’ procedures are in alignment with law enforcement best practices which emphasize integrity, character, public trust, and maintaining the courage to hold oneself and others accountable for their actions.
