A survey of police across Sweden has revealed that a majority of officers want the government to deport more foreign criminals and abolish discounts on prison sentences.
The survey, which was commissioned by the Swedish Police Union and conducted by the firm NOVUS, found that a large majority of police officers, 64 per cent, agreed that the government should increase the deportation of foreign criminals.
A total of 66 per cent of officers said that they wanted to abolish automatic release after prisoners serve two-thirds of their sentences and 64 per cent wanted to get rid of “youth discounts” on sentences for younger criminals, newspaper Aftonbladet reports.
Deportations of criminals may have some impact on Sweden’s levels of crime, particularly in fatal shootings, as nearly nine in ten of the suspects involved in such killings in Sweden come from some form of migration background.
