Trygghetskommissionen (the Commission for Crime Prevention and Increased Security) was established in June 2017 on the initiative of Insurance Sweden. The background was the deteriorating crime figures and growing public insecurity. The Commission was tasked with examining developments in reported everyday crime and crime-related insecurity, as well as proposing measures to break the negative trend.

As regards everyday crime, Insurance Sweden highlighted three trends as particularly problematical; the situation in areas identified by the police as disadvantaged, the crimes committed by mobile organised crime groups and the drastic rise in the number of crimes of fraud. The Commission is also to examine the opportunities available to the insurance industry to contribute to increasing security in society. This first report deals with everyday crime, crime-related insecurity and problems concerning disadvantaged areas. Other matters will be dealt with in the Commission’s final report to be published in December 2018.
