Our tasks

It is the task of PET to prevent, investigate and counter threats to the freedom, democracy and security of Danish society, just as the work also includes the Danish Realm. Against this backdrop, PET handles a wide range of intelligence and security tasks on a daily basis.

The intelligence task of PET consists of collecting, analyzing and communicating information concerning threats to Denmark and Danish interests, while the nature of the security task is to counter the threats identified by the intelligence efforts. The balancing point between intelligence and security tasks in PET is dynamic and determined by current threats and various other external factors.
