Prosecution rates for human trafficking have risen but more to do to protect victims
NPCC lead for modern slavery agrees with the Anti-Slavery Commissioner Kevin Hyland that we need to keep improving our response to modern slavery but says progress is being made
National Police Chief's Council Lead for Modern Slavery, Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said:
"Within the past year prosecution rates for human trafficking have risen significantly and many trafficking prevention and risk orders have been put in place to control the activity of high risk offenders. We need to keep reviewing and improving our response to modern slavery as well as tackling other forms of serious and organised crime and counter terrorism. We are committed to playing our part in stopping people trafficking and slavery and will continue to work with Anti-Slavery Commissioner to do so."
