Managing and Deporting
Foreign National Offenders

There are occasions when foreign nationals who have committed serious criminal offences in their home country or in other countries outside of the UK, make attempts to come to the UK to live, work or for the purpose of criminality.

Some of these foreign nationals are part of an organised crime group whereas others are lone offenders. Programme Challenger is committed to identifying any such offenders that live or spend time in Greater Manchester to take appropriate action against these individuals, including deportation in some cases.

Border Force is a key partner in Programme Challenger and they use their powers to refuse foreign national offenders entry into the UK.

In November 2017, Programme Challenger launched Project Advenus which seeks to ensure that this system of identifying and taking action against foreign national offenders is operating effectively.

We are committed to identifying offenders that live or spend time in Greater Manchester.
