Cases of theft come from behind in the queue: It is reprehensible

It appears the rear side of an action plan of the national Police.

"I think it is reprehensible that a crime is being downsized at the expense of another," says indbrudsofferet Sallie Nielsen.

In april 2018, she had a burglary in his home in Esbjerg. Burglars battered her dog and robbed her home, but after a year of waiting she got the message from the police that the case had been filed.

In a series of articles have B. T. told about the victims of crime, who haven't got the assistance of the police or must wait for years.

a week ago calmed the justice minister Nick Hækkerup the population, that waiting times are decreased in cases of violence, rape, killing, robbery, and threats.

"It is a small light which is on. We are moving in the right direction, but we are far from being in goal," said Nick Hækkerup, in an interview with B. T. 20. november.

But it is a truth with modifications. A report on the Rigspolitiets action plan represents, however, a different picture of the small decrease that has happened in the cases of personfarlig crime.

According to the report, decreases the waiting time only because the increases in other types of cases.

'the Priority of cases on the personfarlig crime will be of importance for the treatment of other criminal matters. This is particularly the case of the prosecution that with the current ressourcesituation not have the ability to handle more cases, but alone can prioritize resources for different types of cases,' says the report.

According to the Berlingske tidende, has the country's prosecutors been told only to deal with cases of personfarlig crime. Line Scharf, who is president of the Association of Public Prosecutors, can easily recognize the image of that cases of theft and financial crime is downsized.

"There is a sharp prioritisation of cases on the personfarlig crime at the expense of other types of cases. It is due to the lack of full-time employees in the public prosecution service. It is no use to give the police more resources, if you do not think the rest of the system," she says.

Spokesman Karina Lorenzen (SF) have an understanding that the police and the prosecution need to prioritize, but still the situation is unsatisfactory.

"It is crucial for the trust of the people, that you have a case, will be treated on an equal footing with the other cases. It is fine that you put into there, where there has been a offerkonfrontation, but I am not satisfied with that financial scammers can get free games. When the cases become obsolete, ends with, that they have impunity, and it is saftsuseme a limp signal," says Karina Lorenzen.

She backed up by Peter Skaarup (DF), who wants twice as many new cops than it, the government has put up to, and at the same time, he wants money in the Budget to hire more prosecutors.

Sallie Nielsen tells that she still is mentally labeled by the compromise. After B. T. had referred her case the first time, met a deputy police commissioner in person at her address and gave her an excuse.
