Local Policing in Swedish Cities: An Answer to Youth Violence?

Published fredag 11 september 2009 kl 16.54
In certain places like Uppsala and Gothenburg, these policemen might have to dodge stones.

Two different methods of policing—and two different results. Young people are setting fire to cars and throwing rocks at police in the university city of Uppsala, but Stockholm suburbs are calm.

Starting four years ago, Stockholm police began setting up small, local police stations in suburbs like Ronna, where unemployment is high. But the Uppsala police authorities have taken another approach. Instead of opening local stations, they’ve been shutting them down.

Can this have anything to do the fact that Stockholm has been spared the youth violence that's been plaguing Uppsala? Radio Sweden's Linda Nyberg reports.
