Wednesday 3rd October 2007 saw the launch of Operation Pentameter 2 by the Home Secretary, the Rt Hon. Jacqui Smith MP.
The main aims of Operation Pentameter 2 includes identifying and disrupting those involved in human trafficking, rescuing victims, improving our knowledge and understanding of trafficking and raising awareness of this form of criminality.
Pentameter 2 aims to ensure the United Kingdom becomes hostile territory for those criminals who engage in 21st century slavery. The UK through this initiative is launching a fresh campaign to combat trafficking in this the 200th year since Parliament passed the Act to abolish the slave trade in the British Empire.
If you have information about human trafficking then the police can help.
In the case of important urgent information that requires an immediate response contact any Police Officer, your local Police force or dial 999.
Alternatively if you are a victim, or have information that will help lead to the identification and recovery of victims in the UK, you can contact CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 and give information, this can be done anonymously and you may be able to claim a reward.
