Norway, Sweden to establish a joint police station against cross-border crime


Norway and Sweden will establish a joint border police station to combat cross-border crime, the Norwegian government said in a press release on Friday.

Located in Magnormoen, Norway’s second largest border crossing with Sweden, the project comes on the heels of a temporary duty station set up by the Norwegian government in 2022.

“We must have control at the border and choke the wallets of the criminal circles,” says Norway’s Minister of Justice and Security Emilie Enger Mehl in the press release.

The joint police station will be evenly distributed across Norwegian and Swedish territory, with a shared office and a common area that shares the national border.
