Sweden to Hire Hundreds of New Police Officers Amidst Rising Sexual Violence

Sweden will employ hundreds of new police officers in an effort to tackle a growing trend of sexual offences against vulnerable people and children.

Mats Löfving, head of the police’s national operational department, Noa, commented on the new policy saying: “For me, this is incredibly big, I think it is the biggest and most important investment I have had in my time in the police. It is perhaps the most vulnerable group that we are helping, women and children, who are exposed to violent and sexual offences,” Swedish broadcaster Sveriges Radio reports.

According to police, the Prosecutor’s Office, and the Crime Prevention Council, the number of sexual offences within relationships and where children are victims, is increasing with only half of the reported rape cases in Sweden seeing any kind of resolution.
