Abstract [en]

Crime prevention and community safety are issues that the Swedish government constantly have to struggle with. With different working conditions, priorities and budgets for each region and municipality, such tasks could turn into colossal challenges if the right solutions aren’t taken. In the last couple of years the government has together with the police and crime-preventing council (Brottsförebyggande rådet) issued a number of publications encouraging the municipal councils to cooperate with police, governmental bodies and local civil actors. The motive being that crime-preventive reforms and measures only work if all actors act like a coherent body, from planning to implementation of policies. These publications have also advocated the use of several crime-preventive methods when planning such reforms.

The goal with this essay is to examine the incorporated crime-prevention methods such as the control theory and structural change theory. Questions to be answered are also about the measures taken and levels of cooperation in the two municipalities of Örebro and Karlstad. This has been done through the lens of the qualitative method because we were interested in studying the subject on different levels. To do so we have performed four interviews with one municipal commissioner from each municipality, one security coordinator in Karlstad and a local area police in Örebro. We have also studied several documents related to the empirical material.

The conclusion has been that there are similarities regarding the usage of crime-prevention methods but that the implementation of measures differs regarding community safety and long-term effects to provide a safe environment for the citizens
