Law enforcement services in Sweden are provided by one single police organization, the National Swedish Police, which is part of the Ministry of Justice. Additionally, each of Sweden’s 21 county police authorities is responsible for maintaining public order and security and preventing crime in its own county.
National police objectives:
- Reduce opportunities for the commission of crime;
- Prevent, detect and investigate more crime;
- Improve the quality of crime investigations;
- Go beyond mere investigations, basing activities on public needs, swifter service and improved availability.
National Police Board
The National Police Board is the Swedish Police’s central supervisory administrative authority. It serves as the essential link between the government and the 21 police authorities. Its main task is to create the best possible conditions for high quality police performance and results.
Swedish National Bureau of Investigation
Sweden’s National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is part of the National Police Board. It is headquartered in the capital Stockholm and headed by the NBI Commissioner who reports directly to the National Police Commissioner. The NBI has five departments:
- International Police Cooperation Division;
- Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Division;
- Special Operations Division;
- Central Border Control Division;
- Office of the Chief Staff.
The NBI leads and coordinates Sweden’s fight against organized crime both at national and international level. The NBI is also responsible for coordinating police efforts during crisis situations and events of national concern.
The INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Sweden is not an independent unit but instead part of the NBI’s “Single Point of Contact” (SPOC), a department in the International Police Cooperation Division. Housed at the national police headquarters in Stockholm, the SPC is made up of two units:
- International Section (comprising the NCB);
- Liaison Officers Section.
Operational 24 hours a day, the International Section is staffed by 55 men and women in charge of the exchange of operational information through INTERPOL, Europol and Schengen channels, in addition to the Nordic liaison officers’ network.
