Traffickers on the move

A recent report is highlighting the fact that traffickers are moving their operations around the country. A report from a Cheshire newspaper (see link below) describes an operation across several police forces, together with the National Crime Agency, to apprehend and charge in connection with trafficking offences.

Our experience has shown that traffickers can move their operations almost instantly once they know they are under suspicion.  We have also found that some police authorities do not treat trafficking suspicions with sufficient importance particularly if there is the likelihood of a complex investigation involving several forces.
The link below shows that
1. Victims can be controlled from one place but the traffickers have “outlets” all over the country with the facility to move victims around
2. The police must co-operate across their regional boundaries treating the issue as a priority to get the right result
