Answered By: 
The Mayor

There have been 255 arrests made by the Human Trafficking and Kidnap Unit between 1st January 2014 and 30th September 2015.

From these arrests, 63 resulted in a sanctioned detection.  In the majority of cases this will mean that a person has been charged and sent for trial.  

The data on convictions is CPS data which cannot be accessed by the MPS/MOPAC in a searchable format.
