The Modern Slavery Report highlights Crown Prosecution Service (CPS)‘s efforts during 2017-18 to disrupt, prosecute and improve their response to offending. Findings show a 27 per cent rise in the number of suspects charged with modern slavery and human trafficking offences compared to the previous year, and a 31 per cent increase in the numbers of cases referred to the CPS from police and other agencies.

The report also focuses on the efforts being made to build an effective global network to tackle cross border cases. It shows emerging trends in modern slavery crimes, including‘county lines’ offending – the trafficking and exploitation of young people by drug gangs in the UK.
