Human trafficking and modern slavery

Human trafficking and modern day slavery is a significant threat both within West Yorkshire and nationally. Not only can it have a traumatic impact on its victims, but those involved in human trafficking often have links to other serious organised crime. West Yorkshire has already led the way nationally in tackling human trafficking and modern day slavery and I have set up a West Yorkshire Anti-Trafficking Network and a national network to combat this problem. I will continue to coordinate efforts against this crime by making sure we understand the extent and nature of the threat and resource the police and partners sufficiently.
