Andrew Boff, Conservative Member of the London Assembly: The best policing model I found to tackle this lack of reporting was in "Merseyside". This included labelling attacks against sex workers as hate crimes as a way of acknowledging that they were a minority who were disproportionately targeted by criminals. I recommended, in Silence on Violence, that London should follow Merseyside’s successful example and label crimes against sex workers as ‘hate crimes’. Boff - who wrote the 2012 British report - Silence on Violence: Improving the Safety of Women. The policing of off-street sex work and sex trafficking in London gets "In The Booth With Ruth".
