Requires a law enforcement officer that takes a minor into custody under this section to immediately report an allegation of a violation of GS 14-43.11 and GS 14-43.13 to the director of the social services in the county where the minor resides or is found, upon which an investigation into child abuse or child neglect must begin with 24 hours.

Deletes proposed changes and new language in GS 15A-622, Formation and organization of grand juries; other preliminary matters, and replaces them with new subsection GS 15A-622(i), which provides that an investigative grand jury can be convened pursuant to GS 15A-622(h) if the petition alleges the commission of, attempting to commit or solicitation to commit, or a conspiracy to commit a violation of GS 14-43.11 (human trafficking), GS 14-43.12 (involuntary servitude), or GS 14-43.13 (sexual servitude).
