Increased Security for Prosecutors

Published fredag 28 september 2007 kl 12.14

There’s a call for higher security for Swedish prosecutors, because of threats.

The Swedish Prosecution Authority has hired a chief security officer to work on improving protection for Swedish prosecutors.

Eleven percent of the prosecutors in this country say that they have been subjected to harassment, but it’s rare that the threats are later turned into violent actions. But the Swedish Prosecution Authority is taking security seriously after an attack in Stockholm last summer, when a man had set a fire at the home of a prosecutor.

The offender was sentenced to six years in prison.

A survey from 2005 by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention shows that one out of five prosecutors that had been threatened were considering changing profession.
