All the employees in the Danish police must now be cleared to a higher level than in the past. It requires, to employees, lovers, spouses and children over 18 years of sign, that the PET must walk them out.

Chairman of the Politiforbundet Claus Oxfeldt have an understanding that you have introduced the tougher background checks.

- But it is lagging in this case, is information about why and exactly what it is you want to investigate about our family members. It has been imperfect, and it is something we have been made aware of the national Police, he says.
