  • During the Christmas Eve day, SOS Alarm received about 10,500 alarm calls, an increase of about ten percent compared to last year.

  • The most common alarm calls this year have been about fires and traffic accidents. But alarms about mental illness are also common.

  • “This time of year around Christmas and New Year, we always see an increase in mental illness and also crime in close relationships,” says Magnus Jansson Klarin, press spokesperson at Police Region Central.
