Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva områdespolisers syn på att arbeta nära medborgaren samt om och i så fall hur synen på arbetet skiljde sig mellan områdespoliser i en storstadsregion och en glesbygdsregion. Genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex områdespoliser, tre från vardera region, fann vi att samtliga intervjudeltagare hade svårt att definiera vad det innebar att arbeta nära medborgaren. De hade även svårt att urskilja vad som var brottsförebyggande och reaktivt i arbetet. En tydlig skillnad mellan områdespolisernas syn på arbetet var att de intervjuade i storstaden fokuserade på individen medan de i glesbygden fokuserade på det lokala samhället. Detta var återkommande skillnader genom hela resultatet. Områdespolisernas arbete förknippades med flera olika utmaningar och möjligheter men samtliga intervjudeltagare såg positivt på att arbeta mot att komma närmare medborgaren och att bli mer brottsförebyggande.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to describe the views of community police officers towards working close to the citizen and if the views differed between community police officers in a metropolitan area and in a rural region, and if so, how they differed. Through semi structured interviews with six community police officers, three from each region, we found that all interviewees had difficulty defining what it meant to be close to the citizen. They also had difficulty distinguishing what was preventive and reactive in their work. A clear difference between the viewpoints of the work was that interviewees in the metropolitan area focused on the individuals while the interviewees in the rural areas focused on the local society. These were frequent differences throughout the result. The work of the community police officers was associated with a variety of challenges and opportunities, but all interviewees were pleased to work towards getting closer to the citizen and becoming more preventive.
