Law Enforcement Toolkit
Welcome to our FGM/C law enforcement toolkit. This toolkit is a resource for law enforcement as well as other professionals in the U.S. criminal justice system including child protective services, attorneys and others. We want to help you learn more about the practice of FGM/C in the U.S., the federal and state laws that prohibit the practice of FGM/C, why FGM/C is considered a form of child abuse, and how law enforcement can support survivors.
The toolkit will provide you with information to address FGM/C in your community. You will learn more about FGM/C, how to identify it, and how best to speak to people about it. We all have a part to play in ending this harmful practice.
