Adult men with a Norwegian citizenship are most frequently imprisoned in Norway, but more than half of those in custody were non-Norwegian citizens. Although this is relatively similar to recent years, far more people are serving their prison sentence under electronic monitoring (EM) outside of prison facilities.
Of the 4 103 prisoners at the beginning of 2014, 72 per cent were serving a prison sentence and 2 per cent were under preventive detention. Those serving a sentence for non-payment of a fine made up just over 1 per cent. The remaining 25 per cent were being held in custody.
