Modern slavery presents police and law enforcement agencies with unique and difficult challenges.

This is the website of the Modern Slavery Police Transformation Programme. We work to support police officers, police staff and law enforcement partners to lead the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking.
Our aim is to help to deliver a consistent response to protecting victims and targeting offenders - and to work with partners to ultimately help prevent exploitation from having a place in our society.
