(Lexical meaning: Germinate, grow, develop, aspire.)

A project to increase ethnical and cultural diversity as well as equality within the Stockholm County Police


Lexical meaning germinate grow develop aspire

The composition of personnel within the Police should be representative of society:

To increase the possibility of acquiring information from different groups.

To make the public identify with the Police to a greater extent.

To increase open-mindedness within the Police.

Because an increasing portion of our population is of foreign origin.

Because an expected future lack of labour makes inclusion essential.


Spira project aims

More young men and women of non-Scandinavian origins shall be able to gain a foothold in the labour market.

The project shall increase understanding of different cultures, within and outside of the Stockholm County Police.

More employers will consider the target group an asset.

Active project marketing in Stockholm County but also in other parts of the country.

To undertake joint marketing for similar diversity projects in the counties of Skåne and Västra Götaland.
