DENMARK, 22 SEP 2023: Danish police has installed special body search zones in Odense in an attempt to combat crime. The zones include the Vollsmose, parts of Korsløkkeparken, Tornberg and more. Officers have now more rights to stop and search individuals they suspect might be part of (organised) crime. The so-called visitationszoner were made legal by law in 2004, and are meant to give the police the possibility to limit people’s rights for a limited amount of time after a serious indicent. In Odense, it was a bomb explosion that wounded one recently, quickly linked to an ongoing gang conflict. Danish police have already arrested six suspects in relation to the bomb attack.
