In the event of a crisis

The main objective for the new Police Emergency Response Unit is to prevent, avert, handle and normalise extraordinary events and crises. The unit will consolidate the emergency squad, bomb service, crises- and hostage negotiation and helicopter service to encourage interdisciplinary training and cooperation.

Simulation training

Located on the border of the capital, the unit will facilitate training for the police on a national scale. The centre will be used by 2-300 people on daily basis and includes various training facilities, in- and outdoors shooting range, helicopter landing, a simulation “village” and administration.

Cost efficient

By the time the project started on site the project team had helped cut costs by 15% from the allocated budget.
