Raising Awareness of Labour Exploitation in Fenland

The Deputy Police & Crime Commissioner, Community Safety Team and Fenland Police joined forces to engage with the local community to raise awareness of labour exploitation in Fenland yesterday. The team spoke to local businesses, providing them with posters and information about a free online course for staff, and engaged with the public, signposting them to our the website http://www.advicechain.co.uk that is full of localised in information about exploitation as well as the link to the online course.

We also have a short film showing in the Luxe Cinema in Wisbech this week which we hope will encourage people to report suspected issues to the Police.
