The groundbreaking was jointly made by Biljana Pehrsson, CEO at Kungsleden and Björn Myrberg, CFO at The Correctional Care Center, together with Cathrin Ahlgren, manager at The Correctional Care Center in the north region.

Kungsleden (publ) has previously signed a lease agreement with the Correctional Care Center concerning a new custody and probational facilities in Östersund, covering 3 000 sq.m. with room for 14 detention cells.

In the property Karlslund 5:2 there are already several agencies and organization tenants such as Police, Prosecutors, Emergency Services, SOS Alarm, Customs, Ambulance and Health Care Advisory along with The Swedish Social Insurance Agency, which at year end will extended their lease agreement for another six years. All tenants are part of Trygghetens Hus a co-location which has the task of providing security and service for the citizens.
