The Border Violence Division (BVD) of the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office (NMAGO) is a legal division specializing in International Extraditions, Investigations and Prosecutions of Human Trafficking and Money Laundering cases throughout the State. Using a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional approach, the BVD strives to educate and foster cooperation and mutual support among the network of legal, law enforcement and social service agencies which serve as our collaborative partners. BVD provides investigative support and training to all NM law enforcement agencies. The NMAGO drafted New Mexico’s human trafficking statute and has taken the lead role in training law enforcement, promoting awareness and prosecuting New Mexico’s first human trafficking cases. The BVD provides awareness through trainings and media campaigns as well as through the development of statewide anti-human trafficking work groups which have established partnerships between law enforcement and victim service providers.
