Amanda Rollins and Declan Murphy

Rollins with Declan Murphy when undercover

Prior to being assigned the Special Victims Unit, he was undercover as "Declan O'Rourke" at an illegal gambling station. He helps Detective Rollins keep her job when it came out that she stole a phaser from the evidence locker.

Murphy was assigned as the commanding officer of the Special Victims Unit and he gave Olivia Benson a 24 hour security detail. However she gives them the slip but they manage to track her down, but not before William Lewis shot himself.

Murphy didn't believe that "the sky was falling" with the grand jury trial. He also stood up for Benson in the trial after learning that Olivia had started writing her retirement papers to keep her pension and to save her shield. Since he was still in charge, he asked her to stay and serve as his number two.

Murphy left the squad when an undercover operation required his participation, leaving Sergeant Benson in command of the Special Victims Unit.

Lieutenant Murphy reappeared, revealing that his undercover assignment was to infiltrate a sex trafficking ring. He spent the last several months working his way up the chain, and after Sergeant Benson and her team took down his immediate targets, Murphy declined to come in from the cold and return to command of SVU, instead opting to remain undercover as the new head of one of the largest sex trafficking rings on the East Coast.

It is revealed that Declan is the father of Amanda's baby.
