The Government's forthcoming strategy on human trafficking will set out the steps we will take to strengthen our response, including how we will improve co-ordination of law enforcement efforts in the UK.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is currently taking a number of actions to increase the number of successful prosecutions for human trafficking, including encouraging victims of trafficking to engage with criminal proceedings. The CPS will shortly be publishing a public policy statement on how they deal with victims of human trafficking. This will provide information for practitioners and the public on what can be done to protect and support victims who decide to give evidence.
The CPS is also working with other jurisdictions through joint investigation teams to target trafficking chains and to develop improved co-operation with other jurisdictions to allow for better mutual legal assistance.
