Police Co-operation across the Danish-German Land BorderPolitisamarbejde over den dansk-tyske landegrænse
The article deals with barriers to regional cross border police cooperation. Leading police officers in the Schleswig-Holstein state police have experienced that the Danish police in recent years has become more reticent in regional cooperation across the border, especially in relation to cooperation on the Danish side of the border. The article examines possible explanations to this reticence. Should an explanation be sought in history and in notions linking the national police with national sovereignty or is the reticence an unintended consequence of a comprehensive reform of the Danish police in 2007 that included a significant centralization of Danish police?
