A city church is hosting a conference on how to tackle modern day slavery.
Police and crime commissioner, Jason Ablewhite will speak to people about what is being done to tackle the problem in Cambridgeshire at an event in Cambridge on Saturday March 3 from 10.30am to 2.30pm.
Mr Ablewhite said: “Slavery is not a thing of the past. It ruins lives and is happening right under our noses.
“Today is a great opportunity for us to help people spot the signs that someone may be at risk.
“A great deal of work has been done over the past couple of years to bring those offenders who commit this despicable crime to justice however there is a lot more we can do.”
