Fewer police now working against terrorism threat

Police are scaling back their work against terrorism now, after a special thrust that started last week in light of the Paris attacks and the search for a 22-year-old man in Sweden who had been suspected of planning to commit terrorism.

The man was arrested but has since been released and is no longer under suspicion.

Mats Löfving, the head of the police's Department of National Operations (NOA) said that the police will still be extra vigilent and prepared, considering the threat level remains raised at level 4, but that the police will manage this within the framework of their normal duties.

According to Swedish Radio News, this means that fewer police will be involved.
