SCANDINAVIAN investigators have captivated England for the past few years, so it may come as shock Danish detectives visited Herts Police to learn a few new tricks.

Rather than flying over to help our boys in blue with a The Killing type mystery they were merely here to check out the force’s tactics and technology use.

The four-strong party even visited Welwyn Hatfield Council’s Community Safety Partnership panel.

Assistant Chief Constable Mick Ball said: “It was a pleasure to meet the Danish officers who were here to learn about a number of different aspects of policing in Hertfordshire.

“They were very impressed by the way we do things in the county and will be feeding back a lot of information to their own force as they plan for the future.”
