Report on the Danish police’s management of weapons and ammunition


Report no. 14/2016

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Danish National Police has ensured that weapons and ammunition are managed securely in the police districts. 

It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the Danish National Police has not ensured adequate management of weapons and ammunition. The Danish National Police is responsible for establishing the framework and rules for the safekeeping of weapons and ammunition in the police districts. The police districts are responsible for ensuring full overview of the location of all weapons, at any time. It is Rigsrevisionen’s overall assessment that neither the Danish National Police nor the police districts have lived up to their responsibilities in this respect.  

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in October 2017.
