Norfolk Police is calling for a stop to human trafficking and modern slavery at a special conference this week.

The all-day event takes place on Thursday at Wymondham and aims to increase awareness of human trafficking and how to spot the signs of slavery.

Assistant Chief Constable Sarah Hamlin said: “Modern Slavery is a reality and happens everywhere, even in rural Norfolk. It’s an abuse of Human Rights and effects society’s most vulnerable men, women and children.

“It is vital that Norfolk Constabulary works together with our partners and external organisations to identify and support victims. We all have a role to play in helping these individuals who are being exploited by organised criminals.”

Antonia Litten, human trafficking co-ordinator, said: “This event is geared at ensuring we are all working towards a co-ordinated approach to help identify more victims of Human Trafficking and give them the opportunity to reach out for help.”
