Human trafficking app launched
Dubai Police have launched a new app for victims of human trafficking and forced labour that they say will allow people to discreetly contact officers for help. The force’s Human Trafficking Crimes Monitoring Centre is rolling out the app. The user enters their contact details, location and sets out the type of help they need. They will then get a confirmation message stating that an officer will investigate the case. Brigadier Dr Mohammed Murr, Director of the General Department for Human Rights, said: “The service will help human trafficking victims to report through the smart application. And police can reach out and provide them with assistance, including legal support.” Human trafficking victims can also email email@example.com or call 800 5005.
