Police and Prosecution Law is a five-year project that is funded by Trond Mohn Foundation, the Faculty of Law (UiB) and the National Police Directorate. The project covers two distinct areas of authority: police tasks in connection with operational police work, and the police and prosecuting authority’s tasks in connection with criminal proceedings. The project is organised in four sub-projects that all examine legal issues in areas in which the police and the prosecuting authority are facing new challenges that have yet to be legally clarified.
