The Government is committed to working closely with other countries and international agencies to minimise the risk posed by serious offenders travelling to and from the UK. UK law enforcement authorities flag UK sex offenders and other high-risk individuals to European partners using the Second Generation Schengen Information System (SIS II) and the National Crime Agency’s Liaison Officers work with countries around the world to ensure host countries can take appropriate action in relation to the highest harm individuals. INTERPOL systems underpin our international law enforcement cooperation with countries outside the EU but decisions on the use of INTERPOL notices are an operational matter for UK law enforcement.
