Special police squad planned to fight gangs
Justice Minister Knut Storberget has called for a new police squad to be established to fight organized crime with mobile criminal gangs, which have become a serious problem across Norway, reports Norway Post.
The new squad will be based on cooperation between the Highway Police, the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation (KRIPOS) and the local police precincts.
“When crime turns mobile, the special squad must also be mobile,” the Justice Minister says. He estimates that the new force will number between 20 and 60 police officers.
