From the Guardian UK:
Britain's only specialist police human trafficking unit is to be shut down after two years because of a lack of funding, the government said today. [...]
Last week, the 11-strong human trafficking team secured the convictions of a gang of six traffickers, brothel keepers and pimps for their parts in the ordeal of a Slovakian teenager tricked into coming to the UK and forced to work as a prostitute.
The men were jailed for a total of almost 53 years, an outcome Scotland Yard hailed as a "really great result". The case was the unit's biggest success.
After sentencing, at Southwark crown court, the Home Office issued a statement saying combating human trafficking was a "key government priority". Some 4,000 women are estimated to have been trafficked into sexual exploitation in the UK.
Closing this specialized unit does not sound like this crime is a key government priority. If something is a priority then effective efforts will be funded.
