Operation Captura

The hunt is on for more of Britain's most wanted fugitives believed to be hiding in Spain

We are once again seeking Britain's most wanted fugitives.

For years, Spain has been an appealing hideaway for British criminals evading capture. But this changed in 2004 with European Arrest Warrants, making it easier to bring British criminals back to face justice.

Increasingly, crime in other countries has an impact on the UK. Although we have no formal mandate to act outside of this country, we work on projects that can help reduce crime in the UK.
