Sweden - Police union criticises merger - September 30, 2016

Following the release of a government commissioned report from the Agency for Public Management (Statskontoret) into the reorganisation of the country’s polices the Police Union has described the country's police authority as ‘in crisis’. The report on the merger is critical of how new managerial appointments have been made, and says that local police work has not been prioritised sufficiently. While the police union said it shared many of the conclusions in the study, it does not believe it is sufficiently critical.
