Stadtwache in its natural habitat


Developed together with Henning Schulze

Linz, Austria, was and still is a place of great controversy regarding security issues. A new security service – Ordnungsdienst aka Stadtwache – was introduced on 1st September in Linz. Its primary task is to oversee the city’s regulations.
In the run-up to the introduction of the new personnel the opinions of politicians of different parties and civil rights campaign clashed.
One side insisted that the new personnel is necessary and will enhance the security situation noticeable – this side is the represented by the FPÖ mainly. The other side is expecting no change at all and just approved of it – that is the SPÖ. And last but not least the civil rights movement see it as a waste of money and a reawkening of ~70 years dead groups.
