Threats Against Police

Swedish Radio News reports that threats against individual police officers here are increasing.

According to a survey from Statistics Sweden, more than one police officer in three here has been threatened with violence during the last three months.

Because several local police departments lack routines to deal with the problem, the national police have drafted a special plan. According to a police spokesman, threats have always been part of an officer’s life, but now criminals find out where officers live, and are more intent on disrupting the criminal justice system.

The unions representing police officers in the Nordic countries have invited their national police chiefs and Justice Ministers to a meeting to discuss the problem.
