Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to gain more understanding for police officers' experiences for the psychosocial work-environment and their experiences of threat and violence in the work-environment. Through a qualitative study has interviews conducted with police officers to gain a deeper understanding. My main question is: How do police officers experiences their psychosocial work-environment? And the other research questions are: How do psychosocial work environment affect police officers privacy? How the dynamics of the group’s role in the psychosocial work environment? What are the factors that affect/prevent psychosocial work environments? The officers' experiences of their psychosocial work-environment were very similar to each other. They feel that their psychosocial work-environment is positive for their fellowship and communication in their work group. These are some of the factors that are characteristic of a good psychosocial work-environment according to Thoerells (2003).The informants were told that their psychosocial work-environment is good when it comes to team work and cohesion and it has a more personal communication as they work in small groups which allows them to get to know each other more. Working as a policeman in Malmö was experienced as very stressful and there was always a fast pace compared with Trelleborg, which is a smaller town. According to one of the informants' experiences is it less stressful and more peaceful people in Trelleborg comparing to Malmö.
