Pote said the HSI is the investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security and conducts criminal investigations of criminal organizations illegally exploiting America’s travel, trade, financial and immigration systems.

HSI is active in the fight against human trafficking, which occurs regularly in Maryland, according to law enforcement and anti-trafficking organizations. An HSI agent recently participated in training local law enforcement, health care and social services professionals, and concerned citizens in a human trafficking awareness and recognition seminar at the Dorchester County Public Library in Cambridge.
