Our work to close people smuggling routes to the UK is delivered by the Organised Immigration Crime Taskforce. The Taskforce is comprised of officers from the National Crime Agency, Border Force, Immigration Enforcement and the Crown Prosecution Service. It is working closely with law enforcement agencies in 17 source and transit countries to disrupt the organised crime groups that facilitate people smuggling. This work involves intelligence sharing, conducting joint criminal investigations and the provision of capacity building.
