This team is made up of specialist police officers and support staff, as well as STOP THE TRAFFIK, a modern slavery NGO. They take a victim centred approach to modern slavery, and their primary aims are to identify and safeguard victims of exploitation, and support in any investigative activity to bring offenders to justice.
They work with partners such as Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, support charities such as MASH (Manchester Action on Street Health), City Hearts and Salvation Army, and Immigration Enforcement.
This team comprises Immigration Enforcement, Border Force and Greater Manchester Police. They work together to ensure the most prolific offenders and those who commit the most serious offences are identified, and available powers are used to remove them from the UK.
