Norwegian Police Service: It comprises of a central National Police Directorate, seven specialty agencies and twelve police districts but its Police Service is different from the Prosecuting Authority even though there may be partial integration of the two bodies and they have a unified police system.

For instance: the officer responsible for prosecution in court need to obtain a Law degree while an officer who operates outside the court may not need it. The training is a three-year university bachelor’s degree while the second year consists of practical training in the field and all these trainings is to enhance their competence while discharging their duties or tasks.

Another fact that made Norwegian Police Force one of the best in the world is that today, some of the police officers in Norway act specially as prosecutors for minor crimes while some act specially as prosecutors for misdemeanors and felonies respectively even though there is only one civilian police force in the country.

This arrangement helps the country to observe any form of crimes as the police officers responsible for each form of crime differs from another and that is why they also refer to their police officers as specialty agencies.

Recently in 2024, the Norwegian police service has seven specialist agencies, in addition to the twelve districts who are dedicated to tasks such as border control dealing with economic crime or investigating cybercrime and they have no geographical limitation to their powers. Today, the Norwegian Police Officers are exercising these powers in different areas of responsibility such as: patrolling highways, responding to emergency calls and coordinating search, and rescue activities.

    Is this article for real I’m surprised the the UK police made it into any sort of ranking at all. Within the submission I see no specific content to warrant the placing as for transparency perhaps the author is confusing this with threadbare. The UK Police service requires a thorough overhaul.

  4. Mr. me

    And they are not even allowed to carry firearms

  5. Steve

    lmao Either you are not from the UK or you have limited life experience within this field. The Police Force in the UK regularly carry sub-machine guns and sidearms. There are restrictions are placed on the average street (walking) officer, which 9 times out of 10 is a ‘Community Officer’ known as a ‘Special’ which is a voluntary unpaid position for approx 2yrs as a preferred prerequisite for Police Force application who only carry ‘non lethal’ weapons (batons, cs, tazers etc). However fully employed Police Officers patrolling in vehicles, both marked and unmarked, are sat with a sub-machine gun across their chest for immediate response and holstered sidearms which are used for backup as a secondary.

    Unfortunately the current RCMP are so heavily influenced by the political system that the leaders are picked and appointed by the prime minister usually in accordance with the political correct posture of the ruling liberal party that make sure there is women, minorities and pro liberal at the higher level weather deserved or not they are not the RCMP of years ago when they still had pride

  7. Jack

    Ha, NYPD has nothing over LAPD. NYPD cops are sloppy and lack tactical awareness.

  8. G

    What are you even talking about. You are the one who clearly knows nothing about English & Welsh police forces. Moron.

  9. RealCop

    Sorry but you have got that totally wrong. The average British Police office does not carry a firearm whether they are walking or in a vehicle. Only specialist armed firearms officers carry these kind of weapons and they do not get deployed to every day incidents. They are there for when a firearms response is required for a suspect carrying a firearm or a knife. However the average non firearms officer will also respond to those calls. Most UK officers are ‘walking’ officers as you call them, which 9 times out of 10 will not be a Special but a fully paid full time officer, more likely 1 times out of 10 it will be a Special. Community Officers are not Specials, they are a civilian role, whereby a Special is a Police officer with the same powers as a regular officer.

    De politie waar ik woon helaas in België,de nieuwe garde is arrogant en provocerend,vroeger hadden wij rijkswaterstaat deze hadden gezag en waren er wanneer nodig was,ook door leger opgeleid.
    Bovendien zitten we hier met in binnenlandse zaken een trien van cdv en een in zijn wereld leven minister is van justitie,altijd met zijn speldje op van Dame Justitia,bedoelt met haar schaal voor ieder gelijk,ik kots ervan die L…van Justitia liet zelfs als Burgemeester verlaten na andere valse beloftes en ja natuurlijk een Liberaal!
    Er zijn hier wel uitzonderingen,die oprecht zijn en u helpen,ja in ieder stek zit er een rotte appel
