Skjetten is a town in Skedsmo municipality, Akershus county, Norway. It is located approximately 20 kilometres northeast of Oslo's city centre with a population of 10 000. Skjetten was highly affected by gang wars and crime from 1992 - 2007, but crime has lessened considerably in later years. Skjetten is now known for its family friendly environment, in part because of the recent construction of four kindergartens, two elementary schools and a highschool in close proximity.
