- I'm ashamed of the work I do

- I'm ashamed of the work I do
After nine years as a police officer, Patrik Nordgren has decided to submit his resignation.

The judiciary is one big failure, he says to Expressen.

- In my role as a police officer I betray you as taxpayers several times each shift.

For nine years, Patrik Nordgren has worked as a policeman in Gothenburg. But now he has come to a point where he has had enough.

- No matter how good job we do and how well we deliver, nothing happens, he says.

Patrick has felt a huge frustration that resource and work management from the agency's direction has been inadequate.

- It is the taxpayers who pay for the job I perform. They have demands for me to help them when they call and need the help of the police. Although many have the will the results are bad.

In a post on Facebook, Patrik Nordgren writes that he for a long time has put on his uniform with a lump in his throat. He has gone to work with "pain" in his stomach and a sense of failure.

Now I just feel that it is enough, says Patrik.

- There are many times we arrest people and they are released again the next day. It's frustrating.

"In my role as a police officer I betray you as taxpayers every shift, around the clock, seven days a week," he writes.

Patrick is proud of his colleagues - but criticizes the police management.

- I have a requirement of the job I perform. I want to deliver to the public. But how the authority operates today we do not supply a good product. I'm ashamed of the work I do.

- Much focus has been on working hours and wages. But that's not why I quit. It is about extremely poor leadership. You do not listen to staff with experience.
