This is a shocking article

Greetings from The Slave Detective,

I’m not sure this blog will interest too much my American readers. I could be wrong!

I opened this article today in one of The UK’s ‘Red Tops’ who’s articles are, shall we say, not the best written. (Not my words!)

The article:-Brit girl: ‘My six months of agony as Albanian villain’s £25-a-time hooker’ is an investigative journalist telling it’s readers that an investigation has uncovered Human Trafficking is still rife in the UK in the form of human trafficking. It is the fastest-growing form of organised crime. Men, women and children are being tricked or forced from their communities in Britain for slave labour, including the sex trade.

Shocking ah?

It starts with saying that ‘The World proudly marked the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade in 2007’

This I am well aware of as The Metropolitan Police set up my Human Trafficking Team who launched on this date, in March, five years ago.

The article continues to shock us with statistics that tell us what everyone has been say for many years. Well done this investigator.

What is more shocking to me is that The Metropolitan Police announce in this article that it has set up a 40 strong team to combat this horror. This team is Specialist Crime Directorate 9, The Human Exploitation Team, (SCD9) formally The Clubs and Vice Unit – who couldn’t tackle Human Trafficking in 2006.

I have to check the date on this article??? Yes it does say The 4th March 2012.

This to me is very strange. The Metropolitan Police had an elite unit responsible for over 26% of all prosecutions for Human Trafficking in The UK from 2006 until it closed it’s unit in 2010. I know I ran that team!

Then The Management of The Met shut the team down an announced then that they had 100 officers, now dedicated to Human Trafficking, on SCD9, which started in April 2010. I know this as they refused to allow me to be on the team with the Detective Inspector who was my boss, and the rest of the 8 man (and women) team who wanted to continue their great work.

So this article now states that 40 Officers are dedicated to it. I make that a reduction of 60 which isn’t surprising when you consider that since this unit came into being the only significant result has been one of my teams original cases….which they tried to close down saying “it wasn’t a case.”

Strange then that the suspect got 20yrs Imprisonment!

I’m sure this sounds like a rant….. You would be right. It is another terrible example of poor spin and suspect decision making by an organisation that should be brought to task on its Human Trafficking record.

The Olympics are less than five months away and SCD9 are still working as they used to as Clubs and Vice. Not dedicated Detectives challenging The Human Trafficking trade.

I’m sorry but I have to shake my head. Det Insp Kevin Hyland, who runs the Met’s SCD9 unit, says: “We see girls trafficked into Britain for sexual exploitation, mainly from Eastern Europe.”

 Is this also the same Det Insp who was there in 2010?

The article does redeem itself with the addition of ‘Stop The Trafficks’ advice.

Business as usual then with a 60% reduction in staff!!

Stop the trafficking

ACT to end trafficking in YOUR community today.

It can happen to your neighbour, brother, sister, son or daughter. The Sun has teamed up with anti-trafficking association Stop the Traffik to fight this scourge.

Today, we call on our army of readers to increase understanding and create an environment where it is harder for traffickers to hide themselves and their victims.

1. Know the signs of trafficking and how to report it.

2. Become advocates for those hidden or vulnerable.

3. Raise awareness and educate others about human trafficking, how it affects them and what they can do.

4. Campaign for local, national and global change.

5. Network with people in your town — from other concerned community members to professional agencies.

Maybe they should add another to this list.

Sun Readers who use the services of Prositutes STOP NOW! You are fueling Human Trafficking.
