Last month, Scotland's police made a radical policy shift, announcing they would no longer seek to prosecute people brought to the UK to work against their will. This shift is crucial: a "victim focused" approach is needed, if we want to achieve better results in the fight against human trafficking.
I want to emphasise the personality of the people who day in, day out look at some of the worst crimes imaginable. Theirs isn't a job that's easy to talk about down the pub on a Friday night but what they do is absolutely essential. It requires supreme attention to detail and a determination to stay committed to the very end of the removal process.
