Dominican military officials and United Nations agencies are teaming to secure the porousDominican-Haiti border, where human trafficking has proliferated.

The Dominican Minister of Armed Forces in September signed an agreement with the United Nations’ Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations’ High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to bolster protection at the border with an eye toward protecting trafficking victims.

Under the agreement, agents of the Dominican Special Corps for Border Security (CESFRONT) will be trained to spot human trafficking and intervene immediately.
