– If you are from Eskilstuna and want to work there, you end up in Eskilstuna, says Libbie Oxelblad, attraction coordinator for the police in Sörmland.

Can work at the same time

The interest in the education has so far been great. Oxelblad believes precisely that it is due to the adapted form of study. During the training that is in two and a half years and at half speed, students can work at the same time.

"There are many people who dream of the police profession, but for various reasons do not have the opportunity to apply, but I think it will open up for many to apply.

The application for the programme is open until 25 April and the programme is planned to start in January next year.

Sörmland police's attraction coordinator explains why they have chosen to invest in distance education.
