Request

1) How many crimes have your force recorded under the Modern Slavery Act since it came into force in April 2015? Please break this down by financial years 2015-16 and 2016-17. I would also be grateful if you could include figures to date (an incomplete year 2017-18) for April, May, June, July, August, September, October and November broken down by month.

 

2) How many of the crimes that your force has recorded under the act have resulted in a Charge/ Summons being brought? Please break this down by financial years 2015-16 and 2016-17.

Please also note that these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers of incidents/crimes can be misleading and does not necessarily indicate the likelihood of someone being a victim of crime. In addition, the number of incidents/crimes recorded in an area over a period of time can be influenced by a number of factors. Consequently statistics on incidents/crimes for one period may not necessarily be a good indicator of future incidents in that area.

 

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

 

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.
