Polismyndigheten Swedish Police Authority

The Swedish Police Authority is the national police force of the Kingdom of Sweden. The first modern police force in Sweden was established in the mid-19th century, and the police remained in effect under local government control up until 1965, when it was nationalized and became increasingly centralized, to finally organize under one authority January 1, 2015. Concurrent with this change, the Swedish Security Service formed its own agency.[4] The new authority was created to address shortcomings in the division of duties and responsibilities, and to make it easier for the Government to demand greater accountability.
