Modern slavery was introduced as a separate recording category for police recorded crime data in April 2015, covering all forms of human trafficking, slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.

At the time of publication of the 2016 report by the Inter-Departmental Ministerial Group on Modern Slavery, six of the 43 territorial police forces had recorded no modern slavery crimes in the year to March 2016: Durham, Dyfed-Powys, Gwent, North Wales, City of London and South Wales. North Wales subsequently submitted revised data showing that the force had recorded 5 modern slavery crimes during this period.
