Private Investigators Swindon comment on the safety of homeless or addicted and isolated people in light of recent BBC News report dated 7th May 2013: Connors family members jailed for servitude offences

homeless and vulnerable people are at risk from liars like the Connors family. In my professional opinion soup kitchens and other homeless charity workers should be asked to help make these people aware of the possible dangers they face.

According to BBC News article: Connors family members jailed for servitude offences, dated 7th May, Tommy Connors Sr was jailed for eight years (case numberT20117319) and Patrick Connors was jailed for five years (case number T20117297) at Luton Crown Court by Judge Michael Kay for keeping vulnerable men captive and forcing them to work. Passing sentence, Judge Michael Kay said Tommy Connors Sr had targeted men who were "homeless or addicted and isolated" whom he could exploit.

The BBC News report goes on to say that the men were targeted at soup kitchens and off the street with a promise of paid work, food and lodgings. Over the years hundreds of vulnerable workers had been recruited and would have been subject to threats of violence and intimidation by the family. The vulnerable workers would have been held on the Green Acres site at Little Billington, near Leighton Buzzard were they would have been forced to work.

Private Investigators Swindon is often called upon to locate missing persons including vulnerable and unwell people. An investigation including surveillance can be carried out by professional agents who are highly skilled. Unfortunately not every missing person has worried family or friends who would miss them. This is where the Connors family have been able to exploit and take full advantage of people in this type of situation. Private investigators can be used to go under cover in an attempt to establish the full extent of the exploitation.

Spokesperson from Private Investigator Swindon, Billy Owens, said:
“It is very sad that homeless and vulnerable people are at risk from liars like the Connors family. In my professional opinion soup kitchens and other homeless charity workers should be asked to help make these people aware of the possible dangers they face from strangers offering work and food.”
