Law on extra security measures

The Swedish Government has decided that organisations may be granted support for the protection and guarding of buildings if they are vulnerable to violence, intimidation or harassment on the grounds of skin colour, national or ethnic origin, faith, sexual orientation, transgender identity or any other similar circumstance. The law came into effect on 1 October 2018.
