Retsordførere calls for better drabsefterforskning in the new settlement

Rejseholdets abandonment in 2002 has left a hole in the drabsefterforskningen in Denmark, think retsordførere.

the Termination of the Rigspolitichefens Rejseafdeling - popularly referred to as the unit one - in 2002 left a hole in the investigation of difficult homicides, believes more professionals.

Now will SF and the Danish people's Party have this hole filled by the next politiforlig.

It writes the Berlingske tidende on Monday.

- We need to strengthen the skills of both investigation and prevention of homicide. The first can be in the form of a task force or units in Eastern and Western denmark, which has a focus on the complex cases, says SF's spokesman, Karina Lorentzen Dehnhardt, to the newspaper.

Meanwhile, believe spokesman Peter Skaarup from the Danish people's Party, that it can be a key issue at the negotiations, all the while he points to, among other things, the unsolved murder of the then-17-year-old Emilie Meng in 2016.

Bent Isager-Nielsen was drabschef in the road crew for a number of years, later also head of the road crew, so he has been efterforskningschef in several police districts.

He believes that it will be beneficial for the Danish police to have "a small national unit with employees who are always updated on the latest in the investigation of the killing".

Also in the Police believe that there must be something, writes Berlingske.

In a response to the Committee on legal affairs from november 2019 informs the Police that a project is currently examining "how the police drabsefterforskning can be strengthened".

the Number of killings in Denmark is fairly stable. Since 2007, according to the national Police reviewed between 40 and 58 killings per year - 37 in the first three quarters of 2019.

In drabssagerne is the rate of detection according to the National investigation bureau (NEA) of between 85 and 90 percent, writes Berlingske.
