Police back ‘pop-up brothel’ campaign

Postby admin » 08 Jun 2017, 21:04

POLICE in North Yorkshire have backed a campaign to crack down on modern slavery. This week, Crimestoppers launched an appeal to people in Yorkshire to report anyone they suspect of running pop-up brothels in the region.

The charity said many women from Eastern Europe, Thailand and Nigeria are often held against their will and used as sex slaves at homes which were often newly-acquired properties, privately-rented flats or houses.

Detective Inspector John Paul Freer, lead in force for modern slavery and human trafficking, said North Yorkshire Police fully supported the Crimestoppers campaign to raise awareness of the signs of modern slavery.

Det Insp Freer said: “There is a belief that slavery and trafficking takes place in large, urban cities. However we know that it is a fast growing criminal industry which is very often hidden and is happening all around us in our villages, towns and cities.

“We would appeal to the public of North Yorkshire, if you suspect that slavery of any kind is happening near you or see anything which raises your suspicions that slavery or human trafficking is taking place, please report it to North Yorkshire Police.”
