Police Board Wants More DNA-Testing

DNA analysis

The National Police Board is urging for better utilization of DNA-testing. In a statement on crime statistics the board said that more crimes could be solved if more DNA samples would be taken during routine investigations.

Since 2006 the police may take DNA samples from suspects in grave criminal offenses. The usual method involves collecting saliva samples that are listed in a nationwide register.

Statistics show that last year 34,000 persons were DNA-tested as possible suspects, while the number of serious crimes investigated exceeded 50,000.

According to the police board criminal investigators are reluctant to utilize DNA-testing because they are not familiar with its legal possibilities.
