In 2010/11, e-Borders alerts led to 2,800 arrests after the details of 126 million passengers were checked against 'watchlists' of suspects wanted by the UK Border Agency, police, SOCA and HM Revenue & Customs.
Currently the e-Borders system checks 90 per cent of flights from outside the EU, and up to 60 per cent of those from within the EU, to combat terrorist threats, spot organised criminals, stop immigration abuse and catch fugitives from justice.
In the last year, the e-Borders system flagged suspects wanted in connection with a number of serious crimes and resulted in the arrest of people wanted in connection with 18 murders, 27 rapes, 29 sex offences, and 25 violent crimes." ... more here

Hold on though, UKBA have already decided your guilt. You are no longer a "suspect" because they lead with the headline:-
