The government’s strategy on modern slavery is based upon four strands: pursue, prevent, prepare and protect. The Crown Prosecution Services (CPS) prosecutes these cases and also provides early investigative advice to the police.
The CPS has recently published their Modern Slavery Report 2017-2018.
The Report summarises the role and the functions of the CPS in modern slavery cases and details its actions over the last 12 months.
The CPS states that it has made significant progress in its response to modern slavery but also acknowledges that there is still much more to do.

The figures have been published today (9 August) in the first CPS Modern Slavery report. The report highlights CPS efforts to disrupt, prosecute and improve our response to both modern slavery and human trafficking. In February, the CPS played host to prosecutors from 15 countries from Europe, Africa and South America, to make sure an effective global network is in place to tackle cross border cases.
