What is human trafficking?

The United Nations define human trafficking as, 'The acquisition of people by improper means such as force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them.'

Human trafficking affects men, women and children and may involve slavery, sexual servitude, labour exploitation and debt bondage.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) has dedicated human trafficking teams in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
