When completing the NRM form, the first responder / frontline worker should explain to the victim that their case will be passed on to the police (either by the first responder themselves or the SCA), as they are a potential victim of crime.
The victim is under no obligation to cooperate with the police to receive support through the NRM. If the potential victim indicates they will cooperate, then the police will contact them regarding the allegation. Otherwise, communication will be with the person who made the third-party referral.
The MSOIC Unit has developed a substantial volume of guidance on Modern Slavery and this is available to officers on the College of Policing Knowledge Hub.
The MSOIC Unit has also developed two important training courses. The first is an e-learning course aimed at providing basic awareness for all officers and the second is a four-day course for investigators that has been running since 2017. The e-learning course is currently being updated jointly by the MSOIC Unit and the College, hopefully it can be launched soon.
