This chapter, based on the author’s experience of dealing with over 200 victims of human trafficking and involvement in a number of “operations”, looks at the models of intervention employed in Scotland over the last few years. Focusing, in the main, on law enforcement agencies it also considers the experience of other agencies, including support organisations. The chapter considers models of good practice and examines interventions which have been less than successful. Areas where promising actions were hindered by poor strategic coordination are discussed with consideration of potential ways to make improvements and locating the key approach to effective care and support for victims within comprehensive and co-ordinated services.
