More young people suspected of drug and violent crimes

The number of young suspects involved with drug and violent crimes is going up, according to new figures from the police.

Last year, there were nearly 27,000 suspected crimes like that in Sweden where the suspects were under the age of 18.

The number of suspected young offenders has increased year-on-year since 2016, and it looks like the trend will continue this year.

Swedish Radio News spoke to police officers working with young offenders in Täby, north of Stockholm, who say they see a clear development in the last few years.

I’ve never seen these types of figures before, so something is going on. A couple of years ago, a juvenile robbery was almost a one-off, but this spring we had 20.

It may not sound much, but in our area, we have not had this type of crimes before,"
Tove Werner Pettersson, Täby police’s team for young offenders.
