No Boundaries International selected the unit for their efforts to establish policies for working with human sex trafficking victims, ensuring victims' safety and developing long-term goals for the state to certify intervention and non-residential services for victims.

Kim Silvia, development director for No Boundaries International and a survivor of sex trafficking, presented the award to unit chief Lesley March. The unit's mission is to improve services for Oklahoma crime victims and families who have suffered injustice at the hands of an offender.
