Police commissioner meets anti-slavery chief

West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner met the UK’s first anti-slavery chief to discuss the work the police are doing to tackle human trafficking.

National anti-slavery commissioner Mark Hyland praised the proactive work of PCC Mark Burn-Williamson and the police.

He said: “West Yorkshire has already seen a number of operations relating to human trafficking literally resulting in the rescue of many vulnerable victims, but this activity is potentially just the tip of the iceberg. I discussed with Mr Hyland how essential quality training is for officers and front line staff to make sure that victims are recognised and supported.”
