Devon and Cornwall

Human trafficking and modern slavery are sadly prevalent in Devon and Cornwall. Devon and Cornwall Police are committed to tackling this, working with other organisations to bring perpetrators to justice, and ensure victims can access the best possible care and support’. Detective Superintendent Colwell

Devon & Cornwall

The Devon and Cornwall Anti-Slavery Partnership was established in December 2015 and represents an exciting new development in the force area. It brings the experience and expertise of partnership working elsewhere, specifically in Avon and Somerset, in the context of the overall existing South West Anti-Slavery Partnership.

Our partnership aims to ensure that agencies collaborate, in action on the ground, as well as through information sharing and strategic thinking. The peninsula’s existing Community Safety Partnerships, along with Local Authorities, the NHS, regional crime agencies and NGOs are among some of the organisations essential to our urgent attempts to end the practice of human trafficking and modern slavery across the two counties.

  • Increasing commitment to collaborate from Local Authorities, Community Safety Partnerships, and other agencies, in order to tackle trafficking and slavery in both counties.
  • Multi-agency training across all areas of Devon and Cornwall
  • A growing NGO forum
