The Swedish police have serious plans to recruit police officers from Rinkeby, a crime-ridden migrant suburb in Stockholm.

To encourage more migrant police officers, the police have planned a presentation in Rinkeby for potential candidates today.

News outlet Fria Tiders says the local police authority emphasises the importance of a “mixed background” for future police officers in the country.

“It is important that more people seek police training and that those seeking and then becoming policemen have a mixed background,” says Niclas Andersson, Head of Rinkeby‘s local police.

“We need diversity within the police. Now, we invite you to tell us more and to answer questions to get more people from our target areas”, he adds.

The Sweden police force needs 10,000 new officers by 2024 to increase its capacity to 40,000.

“The increase in the number of police officers should primarily be solved by training more recruits. This means that the student capacity has been increased,” Andersson says.

Rinkeby in Stockholm is a notorious no-go area and has even be called a ‘war zone’ by a Swedish Chief Prosecutor. In August this year a new police station was attacked and set on fire by ‘masked men’.
