Answer

1. There is no specific dedicated unit whose sole role is dedicated to anti-slavery. We do have a Modern Slavery Lead force wide and slavery leads for each policing area of Somerset, Bristol and the North East. We also have Safeguarding Leads trained to make reasonable grounds decisions for trafficked victims.

2. Please note that the Modern Slavery Act offences commenced on the 31st July 2015 therefore there is no information held prior to this date.
