Sept. 22: “Honor-Based Violence, A Local Response to Global Challenges”

Inspector Allen Davis of the Metropolitan Police Service in London will visit Metropolitan State University to discuss the United Kingdom National Police response to honor-based violence (prosecution, protection, prevention, partnership) and advise on how Minnesotans can develop a multiagency response to the violence hidden from view in our communities.

Inspector Davis joined the Metropolitan Police Service in 1996 and leads the partnership team in the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, a specialist unit of 1,300 officers responsible for child protection and rape investigation in London. He leads Project Azure, Scotland Yard’s strategic response to female genital mutilation and breast ironing, and Project Violet, the response to child abuse linked to faith or belief (e.g. witchcraft and spirit possession). Inspector Davis is also national lead for Operation Limelight, a high-profile, multi-agency safeguarding operation deployed at the UK border. Operation Limelight focuses on a range of harmful practices, including human trafficking.

The program will be 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 22
Metropolitan State University, Saint Paul Campus
Library and Learning Center, room 302 (Ecolab)
