Detective Superintendent

Experience and background

I am a Detective Superintendent and a PhD candidate. I am doing research of the Police`s experience with mentally challenged victims of abuse, with a special focus on investigative and preventive actions. The study pursues to develop knowledge of the challenges that police coordinators face in their police practice, and whether different police districts have a unitary and unified practice on how to fulfill their role and task regarding the legal security of the mentally challenged.
