Following the terror attacks in Paris and last week’s anti-terror police action in Belgium, Denmark has for the first time ever raised its official police alert level.
In response to the recent events in Europe, Danish police have gone from level one, “daily preparedness”, on its five-point scale to level two, “slightly elevated preparedness”.
“This is the first time ever that we have gone to this alert level. I’ve been with the police for many years and I cannot remember any point at which we were at a higher alert level than we are right now,” Danish National Police (Rigspolitiet) spokesman Allan Nyring told Jyllands-Posten.
