Finland: Police barred from reporting about the crimes of asylum seekers

Yet another example of why there should never be a nationalized police force…

The politicization of law enforcement is a dangerous thing, having one top-down command structure for all police demonstrates that for all to see.

The police banned from telling about crimes of asylum seekers

At the beginning of last week, Häme Police Department personnel received internal communications instructions on police information related to the current situation of asylum seekers. The six-page guidance signed by the Police Chief and the Communications Officer of the Department has raised a lively discussion among staff in the facility. Many experienced police consider it exceptional.

Discussion has been raised by a daily police newsletter that “not mention the status of the suspect as an asylum seeker when reporting offenses”. In the guidelines, this provision is justified by the fact that asylum matters are widely held in secret and that there is, as a rule, no legal justification for the expression of asylum seeker status.
