As public bodies, the PCC and Merseyside Police are committed to working in partnership with our suppliers to ensure that there is no Modern Slavery or Human Trafficking in the supply chain.
We also encourage our suppliers to achieve high ethical standards and practices including fair and right working conditions across the supply chain.
Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires any commercial organisation that is a body corporate or partnership, carries on a business or part of a business in the UK, supplies goods or services and has an annual turnover of £36m or more to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement.
While the PCC does not fit this requirement, she is committed to tackling Modern Slavery and Chairs the Modern Slavery Network that provides integrated, sustainable and effective interventions for potential victims of modern day slavery.
She has also provided training to other public sector organisations to help them meet these requirements. Find out more about the PCC's Modern Slavery Awareness training.
