This is a summary of the original Swedish Brå report 2017:13

In the 2017 budget bill, the Government established the goal of reducing the number of women who are exposed to violence in intimate relationships. The importance of the Swedish Police conducting proactive, well-considered, and structured crime prevention work in attaining this goal is emphasised.

Brå’s instruction for this report can be divided into four parts. Brå must:

  • identify and compile police approaches and working methods for preventing men’s serial partner violence;
  • determine which of these are promising;
  • determine whether they can be implemented into Swedish police working methods; and
  • estimate which costs would be entailed in working according to
    the promising methods and working methods.
