Moderates want security cameras in vulnerable areas
Sweden's main opposition party, the conservative Moderates, have called for an additional SEK 50 million to increase the numbers of surveillance cameras in crime-hit areas.
"We must make it easier for police to find evidence and we know that surveillance cameras are extremely effective. They increase people's security," Tomas Tobé, the party's justice spokesperson, told TT.
"I recently visited people living in Tensta and I can assure you that they were extremely happy that we had finally put up surveillance cameras."
The Moderates want to concentrate the new cameras in the 23 "especially challenged areas" highlighted by Sweden's national police.
Swedish police have already put up 60 securitycameras in Rinkeby, Tensta, and Husby.
