Malmo police targets gangs
About 65 people in Malmo have been put on what local police call a "focus list". It entails that police will search them and their vehicles at regular intervals.
"By inconveniencing them we want them to understand that they haven't chosen an easy life," says police inspector Henrik Stiernblad, to local newspaper Skånska Dagbladet.
The list includes members of several organised crime networks such Brödraskapet, Outlaws, Red and White Crew but also of more recently established gangs such as Black Cobra and Falangerna, reports the regional newspaper Sydsvenskan.
So far this year, four gang-related murders have been recorded.
The focus list is a joint initiative between police and several other government agencies. They include the prosecutor's office, the tax authority, and the debt collection agency.
