More Swedish municipalities receive grants for ‘drop-outs’

Published 2 February 2024

Most recipients of financial assistance are young men, and half have been involved in gun violence.

In 2023, 45 Swedish municipalities received financial support for “drop-out activities”. At the same time, 164 people were helped to leave organized crime.

Each year, municipalities have the opportunity to receive grants from the Swedish Police Authority (Polismyndigheten) to support those who have decided to stop committing crimes. A total of SEK 72 million (€6.4 million) is available for such activities in the country.

The number of municipalities or city districts that can take advantage of the financial support has increased significantly, from 16 municipalities in 2021 to 45 last year. In 2022 the number was 28, reports Dagens Samhälle (Society Today).

Last year, 164 so-called drop-outs received support, which is a significant difference from 2021, when only 28 people took advantage of the support. In 2022, 113 received help. Most are young men, and among last year’s drop-outs, almost half could be linked to gun violence.
