"the Interior minister Mikael Damberg (S) want to have new technical solutions to verify Sweden's border crossings."
"Among other things, he wants Sweden to take a look at the Netherlands, that among other things uses the advanced camera system to monitor traffic at the country's borders."
"– It is about face recognition, but also to look at the cars that move back and forth across the border, " he says to Sydsvenskan."
"the Netherlands introduced the 2012 system migoboras, which collects information on traffic flows around the clock. By taking a picture of all the vehicles that pass, the data may be used partly to see when the spot checks provide the most results, and the type of vehicle that passes is analyzed."
"for example, If it emerged that the black suvs from a particular country is often used for smuggling or cross-border crime, can migoboras target the type of vehicle, which can lead to fewer vehicles need to be checked unnecessarily."
"the Dutch government has calculated that the installation of the camera system at the 15 largest border crossings and a number of mobile cost the equivalent of 200 million to develop and sek 20 million per year to operate."
"Damberg also highlights the increased cooperation between police, customs and the coast guard."
"– With small changes we can make it easier for the police to do their work. To give passkontrollanter increased powers in order to facilitate the job of trained police officers is definitely a matter I'll look at this, " he says to the newspaper."
