From 1 October, it has been introduced in Norway that all police cars should have weapons on board. But it was revealed that the patrol, which first came on the scene of the previous week’s triple murder, was not armed. The reason was one of the two police officers were not authorized to carry weapons, writes Bergens Tidende.
In the frame of this incident, Police directorate sent a message to all police districts, requiring all patrols to carry weapons, even if all officers are not authorized to use them.
- We would like to clarify the rules and impose armament of vehicles, says director of emergency preparedness and crisis management in the Police Department, Kaare Songstad.
