Young have most faith in justice system
Faith in the Swedish criminal justice system is growing, according to the Swedish Crime Prevention Council, which presented the 2013 edition of its annual Swedish Crime Survey Tuesday.
Over half of all people aged between 16 and 79 say they have strong faith in the justice system in Sweden. That is up six percentage points compared with a similar survey in 2006. The same percentage, 60 percent, also say they have strong faith in the police service. Most confident are the young aged 16 to 19.
The number of Swedes worried about being attacked has fallen from 15 to 10 percent between 2006 and 2013, and just 25 percent of people last year felt that the amount of crime in Sweden was increasing markedly. That is the lowest number since the council started carrying out these surveys in 2006.
