Human trafficking, or modern day slavery as it is often called, is a devastating and widespread crime. It manifests itself in multiple ways including sex trafficking, debt bondage, sex tourism and organ transplants.

These activities affect numerous countries but the more informed we all are, the better able we will be to identify and report them when they happen.

Here’s DSP Carl Berry, head of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Unit, talking about his work tackling human trafficking.
