The Swedish government has also decided that FBA is to deploy staff working within our areas of expertise.

The Swedish Police Authority, the Swedish Prosecution Authority, the Swedish National Courts Administration, the Swedish Prison and Probation Service and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency also contribute with civilian Swedish personnel, working within other areas.
