The Police Directorate is proposing a major upgrade of the police reserve, consisting of civilians with limited police powers.

In a new report featured in newspaper VG, it aims for more active use of the Police Reserve, which was first adopted during the Lillehammer Winter Olympics in 1994. The Police Directorate wants to put 20 million kroner in establishing and strengthening the group during the first year.

It is assumed that the reserve would consist of about 600 people in the 12 new police districts.
The report suggests more frequent trainings of the crew, which is estimated to cost about five million kroner a year. In addition, estimated costs for payroll and local hire in rural areas will reach four million kroner per year. The equipment police reserve uses is described as old and that it should be replaced, which would cost an estimated five million kroner.

The government has just received the report and has not yet reached a conclusion.
