Swedish customs officers want to carry weapons
The Swedish customs officers want to carry weapons on duty, but the management does not agree.

Increased terror threat level and increased border controls have had the Swedish customs officers calling for the right to carry weapons, explains Officer Marcel Gabara at the Helsingborg police to the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.

He says it applies to customs officers who are out in the field and who recently have been ordered to carry out border control.

- We only have the ability to defend ourselves against an unarmed attacker, says Gabara.

The management of the Swedish Customs does not agree with their employees.

- So far we have not had incidents where a weapon could have been the solution to the problem, says deputy Lars Kristofferson in the Customs crime prevention unit. He believes there is no specific threat against Customs officers.

Today, only personnel who work with special assignments in customs, and have a special permit, may be armed.

As a result of the increased terror alert, customs' representatives have now contacted the Swedish Labour Inspectorate to get the case tried there.
