1-Front-picture

Law enforcement services in Sweden are provided by one single police organization, the Swedish Police Authority, which is part of the Ministry of Justice.

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.

Department of National Operations

Sweden’s Department of National Operations (NOA) is headed by the NOA Commissioner who reports directly to the National Police Commissioner.

The NOA leads and coordinates Sweden’s fight against organized crime both at national and international level. The NOA is also responsible for coordinating police efforts during crisis situations and events of national concern.

INTERPOL Stockholm

The INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Sweden is not an independent unit but instead part of the NOA’s “Single Point of Operational Contact” (SPOC), a unit within the International Section of the Division of International Affairs at the Department of National Operations.

Housed at the national police headquarters in Stockholm, the SPOC is made up of five units, four of which provide 24/7 coverage.

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.
