Important but quite “uncool” : A qualitative study about police approach to family violence and to the way the type of crime is handled (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att studera polisers uppfattningar kring förhållningssätt till våld i nära relation samt till hur brottstypen hanteras av poliser. I studien genomfördes semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex poliser som i sitt arbete påträffade och hanterade brottstypen. Det huvudsakliga resultatet visade uppfattningar om att det är viktigt att polisen lägger fokus på brottstypen våld i nära relation men också att många poliser har negativa förhållningssätt till brottstypen. Anledningen till de negativa förhållningssätten var att brottstypen ansågs jobbig och mindre spännande eller ”oball” att hantera jämfört med andra brottstyper. Det tycktes även finnas en oförståelse för målsäganden. Majoriteten av intervjudeltagarnas uppfattningar var att poliser hellre tycktes vilja utgå från erfarenhet och rutiner än metodstöd vid hantering av brottstypen. Samtidigt var många av uppfattningen det förhållningssätt poliser har kan inverka på hur de hanterade brottstypen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to examine police perceptions of approaches to family violence and how the type of crime is handled among the police. The study conducted semi-structured interviews with six police officers who in their work encountered and managed the type of crime. The main outcome of the study was that perceptions about the importance of the police focusing on family violence but also opposite perceptions about existing negative attitudes towards the type of crime among police officers. The negative attitudes were explained to depend on that family violence was considered difficult to deal with, less exciting or less “cool” compared with other types of crimes, and that it seemed to be an insufficient understanding for the victim. The majority of the respondents’ perceptions were that policemen seemed more willing to use experience and routines while dealing with family violence than to use some kind of method support. Simultaneously, many perceived that that the attitude of police officers may affect how they handle the crime.
