Minister wants to keep Swedish test for police

Published onsdag 4 april 2012 kl 08.40

The Minister of Integration Erik Ullenhag has criticized the National Police Board for removing the Swedish exam as one of the entry requirements to the police academy.

In an opinion piece published by newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, Ullenhag and Liberal Party colleague Johan Pehrson writes that good communication skills are essential to good police work and that the party will work actively to continue testing applicants’ Swedish language skills.

The requirements for the police academy were changed this year to no longer include a Swedish exam. Other changes include the same physical tests for men and women and applicants will not be required to submit scores from the National Scholastic Aptitude Test.
