Past Priorities

Tue, October 14, 2014

  • Dyfed Powys Police are asking residents to help in their fight against modern day slavery during a week of activity in October. Our officers will be out in communities speaking to residents, business owners, factory managers and people working at our ports about modern day slavery. They will be explaining what to look out for and how people can help us to stop this exploitation taking place.

    It is a hidden crime. It is difficult to detect but there are signs to look out for, they include; people who have limited family contact; distrust authority; have no friends; appear underfed, uncared for and withdrawn; are disorientated and avoid eye contact. It may be easier to spot houses where victims could be held as the curtains may always be closed or have a reflective coating on them, there may even be locks or bars on the windows, CCTV cameras installed, the letterbox sealed and restricted access to the front and back doors.

    Watch film on modern slavery and find out about the signs to spot victims and how you can help www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv1H_fAoOG4&list=UU697e0rGEZK8tO-qmFN6kag

    You can report any suspicions to us by calling 101, or by calling the national helpline 0800 0121 700.
