“Doing nothing is not an act of love” : About the police´s preventive work with juvenile delinquency (English)
Abstract [en]

The current study focuses on how the police work to efficiently and effectively prevent juvenile delinquency and how they experience their work with criminal youth. As well as how the police experiences the work effectiveness. The study has been carried out using four semistructured interviews with law enforcers in Sweden working with different tasks. The results showed that some things could be done differently in the practical work against juvenile delinquency, however cooperation between different authorities; the police, social workers and schools, is of great importance. An effort should be made by the police to build relationships between them and the youths in order to prevent forming a negative image of the police. To put in early prevention strategies can have both positive and negatives on the youths.

Abstract [sv]

Den aktuella studien syftar till att ta reda på hur polisen arbetar proaktivt mot ungdomskriminalitet och hur de upplever sitt arbete med kriminella ungdomar. Studien har utförts med hjälp av fyra stycken semistrukturerade intervjuer med poliser som arbetar med olika arbetsuppgifter. Resultatet visade att det kan skilja sig något i det praktiska arbetet mot ungdomskriminalitet, men samverkan mellan olika verksamheter är av stor vikt. Det krävs en ansträngning från polisens sida att bygga relationer med ungdomarna för att motverka att en negativ bild av polisen skapas. Tidiga insatser kan få både negativa och positiva effekter.
