Gathering Information on TraffickersMatthew ThorogoodHome Office, UK


We must not forget about the crime

  • Right to focus on data collection, but behind every number there is a corresponding victim and crime.

  • Data and trend analysis should be used to drive the operational and policy responses

  • Are we maximising our ability to act on the information we hold?


The data and information we hold can be used to combat trafficking more effectively

  • Using EU wide intelligence sharing capabilities.

  • Ensuring the frontline have access to the information and intelligence needed to identify and scrutinise those linked to trafficking

When we hold

information

on an individual

Where an individual

is not known

to the authorities

  • Risk profiles: analysis of datasets to identify high risk groups

  • Use data to identify current trends: Factor into training and guidance for frontline staff so they know what to look out for

  • Engaging the private sector and public so they know what to look out for and how to report concerns they may have.


A range of people may come in contact with traffickers and we need effective mechanisms to capture

  • How do we encourage reporting?

  • Do we need to identify the points where our resources can have the most impact?


Let’s look at a UK domestic servitude case

Sensitive material removed

  • Traffickers owned a takeaway England

  • Their victim was 24 years old.

  • Lured to the UK on false promise of better life.

  • On 23/03/2006, The victim was found dead at premises.

Victim


This is the takeaway where she was forced to work

Sensitive material removed


This was her room

Sensitive material removed


This was her bed

Sensitive material removed


And this is where she died

Sensitive material removed

  • Who came in contact with her traffickers?

  • Would their information have prevented this death?


Connecting the intelligence dots

LocalCommunities, victim management, local authorities, neighbourhood, crime group mapping

Nationaltrafficking specialists, national police, Government, border and immigration

International European Police agencies, Interpol, border agencies, intel agencies


When we do hold information this needs to be shared quickly and effectively – not just logged on a spreadsheet.

Information received

Intelligence assessment , analysis and prioritisation

Operational response/investigation/tasking

Local police

Border and immigration

EU Forces

National police forced

EUROPOL

INTERPOL


Traffickers are unlikely to be first time criminals: effective risk profiling can help us identify them

  • Take this case. His profile illiterates how he may be of interest.

  • He came to UK by coach in 2009

  • Previously served 11-and-a-half years of a 13-year sentence in another Member State for murder.

  • Also has convictions in the EU for gross indecency, indecent assault and common assault

  • Would analysis of our datasets have linked him to other risk indicators?
