40

Image40. The number of victims recovered from trafficking in NI since April 2013*. (We said 39 originally, but 1 rescued from cannabis cultivation last week.) The highest annual total so far – over 170% higher than last year – which is down to effective policing and heightened community awareness (NOT to an increase in the activity of traffickers here.)

(*this refers to potential victims identified through the National Referral Mechanism. The strategic baseline assessment suggests another 40 have been recovered but not gone through the NRM.)
