The full report is available on their government website, including descriptions of the fugitives.

The beginning of the report stated:

The National Police are looking for ten fugitives who could be in Spain.

The collaboration of citizens can be decisive in locating them, which is why a specific e-mail address has been set up, [email protected], so that citizens who believe they have any information that could lead to their location can communicate it to investigators in complete confidentiality.

During the year 2022, the National Police will preside over the ENFAST network, which is made up of police officers from the 27 member countries of the European Union and other associated countries such as the United States, Switzerland and Norway.

In 2021 alone, the Fugitive Section has participated in the arrest of 417 fugitives from justice and since 2017 the number of arrests for different claims, national and international, amounts to 2,272.

Citizen collaboration may be decisive in locating them, and a specific e-mail address has been set up, [email protected], so that citizens who believe they have any information that may lead to their location can communicate it to the investigators confidentially.

In 2021 alone, the Fugitive Section has participated in the arrest of 417 fugitives from justice and since 2017 the number of arrests for different claims, national and international, amounts to 2,272.

For the location of many of them, international collaboration has been key, collaboration materialised through tools such as the European Network of Active Fugitive Search Teams -ENFAST-, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to undertake immediate actions aimed at locating and arresting fugitives.

During the year 2022, the National Police chairs the ENFAST network, made up of police officers from the 27 countries of the European Union and other partner countries such as the United States, Switzerland and Norway.

The evolution of this unit and the excellent results have placed the National Police and Spain as the leader in arrests in Europe, which has led to the Fugitive Tracking Section assuming the presidency of ENFAST.
