Swedish version of our ENABLE 2016 report on policing

A Swedish version of our report on policing (published on www.enable-research.org in August 2016) is now available in a Swedish version.

The report goes on to provide a series of recommendations for the future development of football policing in Sweden. Central to these is the empowerment and coordination of dialogue based approaches to the policing of football supporters in Sweden.

ENABLE Report on Policing

The report provides a detailed, comprehensive, in depth and powerful review of the nature of the safety and security problems being confronted by Swedish top flight football and in so doing provides some critical analysis of existing practices, as well as exploring current strengths and opportunities for further development. One of the central issues that the report identifies are problems in terms of proactive verbal and friendly engagement from police ‘front line’ staff.
