Swedish national police chief: Can not guarantee the safety of the Swedish people anymore

The Swedish national police chief, Dan Eliasson, said during a panel discussion recently that he is "surprised how bad it is" and that he "can not guarantee the safety" of residents in parts of Sweden anymore.

According to the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, Sweden now has 53 areas considered to be particularly infested with crime. Here, police has to respond to calls with two police cars, one to guard the other or it will go up in flames or be vandalized.

The Swedish newspaper Expressen, writes that the national police chief, Dan Eliasson, during a panel discussion admitted that he is surprised by the severe crime in Sweden.

- I have been surprised after I became national police chief how bad it is in certain areas during the evenings. If we do not constrain the development I am convinced that not only traditional crime but also radicalization and terrorism is going to increase in our society.

It was in connection with a panel discussion about terrorist threats the national police chief warned against developments in some districts in Sweden.

He mentioned, among other places, Alby, Fittja, Tensta, Rinkeby, Araby and Rosengård, where Swedish society is torn apart.

According to national police chief they have identified 14 areas where life can be described as "difficult", but he says these areas are not so-called "no-go zones" in any way, despite the fact that the police always must use two squad cars when they enter the areas - thus making it the very definition of a no-go zone.

Newspaper editor Peter Wolodarski asked the police chief if they have control over these areas and whether they can guarantee the safety of the citizens.

- No, I can not guarantee the safety in these areas. We have resources, we act, but I can not guarantee the safety some places. In these areas it is difficult, said Eliasson.

- I am seriously concerned about the situation some places in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo. It is serious. There is crime there which severely affects the lives of those living there. There society must increase the effort. More people must get jobs and education and Swedish police must get closer to these areas, he said.

Sweden has experienced several murders on the streets recently, and at the asylum centers in the country.
