The College of Policing mandatory Modern Slavery training package is available to all MPS staff through eLearning. It is expected to take approximately 40mins to complete. Knowledge is tested within the programme itself.

Modern Slavery forms part of the new recruit's syllabus and is delivered on their initial training course. It is also included within the Detective Constables training syllabus.

Follow up bespoke training is delivered by the Trafficking &Kidnap Unit officers to Borough colleagues as and when requested by Operational Command Unit Commanders.
