Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite said:
“Slavery is not a thing of the past. It ruins lives and is happening right under our noses. Today is a great opportunity for us to help people spot the signs that someone may be at risk. A great deal of work has been done over the past couple of years to bring those offenders who commit this despicable crime to justice however there is a lot more we can do.”
