About Texas' Child Sex Trafficking Team
Sadly, children are sexually exploited in Texas every day. They are forced to engage in sexual activity, often for the financial gain of their abuser.
The Child Sex Trafficking Team (CSTT) in the Office of the Governor is fighting to end this crime and to help its young victims.
Our mission is to build sustainable capacity, enhance expertise, promote policies, and create new and leverage existing collaborations to:
- Protect children from sexual exploitation
- Help the public recognize signs of sexual exploitation
- Help victims recover
- Support healing
- Bring justice to those who exploit children.
Texas' Child Sex Trafficking Team has implemented a number of statewide initiatives to help bring an end to the horrendous practice of child sexual exploitation, but we still have much work to do.
Governor Greg Abbott
