The UTC Criminal Justice Department offers perspectives on international crime with a presentation by Detective Paul “Roddy” Llewellyn entitled “The New Scotland Yard” on Friday, Nov. 2, at 10 a.m. in Patten Chapel. This event is free and open to the public.
Mr. Llewellyn currently serves as Detective Sergeant as part of a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) with Europol, Eurojust, and the Romanian National Police which targets an organized criminal network known to have trafficked over 1,107 Roma children into Europe.
He has more than 30 years of police experience and has served as Detective Sergeant in the Metropolitan Police Service in London, more commonly known as New Scotland Yard.
In 2006, Mr. Llewellyn established The Metropolitan Police Human Trafficking Team, Specialist Crime Directorate (SCD) 6 at New Scotland Yard. The team targeted trafficking of human beings for sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, forced labor and organ harvesting in the Greater London area.
The team’s work was featured in “The Trafficking In Persons” (TIP) report 2010 by the US State Department. It was recognized as a center of excellence and for best practice in dealing with victims of trafficking. The team was disbanded when government funding ceased in April 2010.
