NORWAY: Never before have so many criminal foreigners been deported by the Oslo police as now.
Oslo's police chief Hans Sverre Sjøvold has no doubt what the reason is: 30 million "fresh" kroner and 32 new police posts earmarked for operational work in the immigration field.
In the last four months of last year the Oslo police deported 834 foreign nationals, either because of committed crimes or because they lacked work and residence permit. Corresponding figures for the same period in 2013 was 464.
- We have streamlined our system and we find people where they are at all times. The extra money we have received, we have used to make a good system where we see immigration as a whole and has initiated several projects. The project, which started after the summer, immediately gave results, he says to the newspaper VG.
Minister of Justice, Anders Anundsen, (FrP) says it is "awesome" to register the good results of the Oslo Police.
- This shows that political decisions combined with very good police work helps to give good results. Immigration has been an important priority for the government and the Oslo police makes good use of the additional funds. It helps to prevent new crimes and make our capital safer, says Anundsen.
The police Chief says about the plans for this year:
- We will maintain the high activity. Increased focus on the field of immigration in general has proven to be a great initiative.
