The purpose of this study is to report on the extent to which forensic activities have benefited from the government's investment in 10,000 more police employees, whether the increase in resources has contributed to better results and what remaining obstacles there are to achieve an efficient forensic process.
The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå for short) has been commissioned by the Government to evaluate the initiative to increase the number of Swedish police employees by 10,000 (Ju2021/02238). The initiative began in 2018 and will continue until 2024. In the commission to Brå, forensic activities are mentioned as an area that is particularly important to map.
