The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has no records to ascertain how many people identified as a trafficked victim have been prosecuted or convicted for criminal offences in each of the last five years.

The CPS records indicate the volume of offences, not defendants, prosecuted by the CPS under each Act and Section. The records do not distinguish between men, women or children or whether they might have been identified as a trafficked victim.
