Wynyard Group has announced that Hope for Justice UK is now using its Investigative Case Management solution to help the organisation in its fight against human trafficking.
Hope for Justice is a not-for-profit organisation that fights human trafficking, working to uncover and abolish the hidden crimes of modern-day slavery.
With more men, women and children in modern-day slavery than at any other time in human history, human trafficking earns criminal networks the second largest source of illegal income globally surpassed only by drugs trafficking.
As a result, Wynyard’s technology is used by the Hope for Justice Investigations team to help investigate trafficking cases, supporting the organisation to identify victims and remove them from exploitation.
Information and evidence is gathered, analysed and prioritised using Wynyard’s Investigative Case Management technology, which also assists in managing the evidence required.
Wynyard Group COO, Paul Stokes, says Wynyard’s solutions help stop crimes such as human trafficking and track the illicit financial flows from such activities.
“By enhancing the ability of Hope for Justice to investigate incidents in an increasingly challenging global criminal environment, they can be even more effective in tackling these offenders and rescuing victims from trafficking,” he says.
Hope for Justice’s Operations Manager, Graham Simmons adds that Wynyard’s technology will play a major role in helping it investigate and gather more accurate, detailed information and evidence to help local law enforcement authorities complete successful rescues and prosecutions.
“Hope for Justice works in partnership with law enforcement, other agencies and organisations to effectively combat modern-day slavery - because this is such a complex crime,” he adds.
“We believe that by providing our Regional Investigative Hubs with Wynyard’s technology we will improve our capacity to recognise patterns, identify victims and convict more traffickers.”
