In July 2013, DoDEA announced its support for the DoD no tolerance policy and called for all non-bargaining unit employees to complete the DoD annual CTIP mandatory training no later than September 30, 2013.
Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) is a worldwide problem posing a transnational threat involving violations of basic human rights.
Members of DoD are stationed across the globe. Since we are protectors and defenders of our nation's freedom, we need to be vigilant in our efforts to combat trafficking. Trafficking in Persons (TIP) is linked to organized crime and its profits help fuel other illegal activity. It also contributes to the breakdown of law by undermining government efforts to exert authority and by threatening the security of vulnerable populations. Furthermore, TIP threatens the national security of countries creating a destabilizing effect particularly in post-conflict and lesser-developed countries where the rule of law is more easily broken down. Left unchecked, traffickers can become a long term problem by buying their way into the economic, political and law enforcement communities. They may integrate security forces disrupting democratic transition and consolidation thereby creating more conflict. To receive credit for taking the training, you must ensure that DoDEA is chosen as your Primary Organization in your Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) account. Below are the instructions that will associate your individual JKO account to the correct Primary Organization:
