Answered By: 
The Mayor

All officers are provided with mandatory training to assist them in identifying potential victims of trafficking.

MPS officers at Heathrow & City Airports support UK Border Force colleagues in identifying potential victims both entering and leaving the country.

The MPS are also involved in joint international operations targeting flights suspected to be used as trafficking routes.
