Swedish Dialogue Police

During the last nine years the Swedish Police have developed methods and approaches to police situations which are or may become dangerous in everyday police work and at major events through implementing police national police tactics which build on dialogue, de-escalation and non-confrontation. The organization consists of nationally trained commanders, uniformed police officers in mobile units, dialogue police officers and plainclothes arrest officers and transport units.
