Abstract [en]

The Swedish police force is obligated to protect its citizens to maintain public order and to prevent and discover criminality in society. They work around the clock, every day throughout the year for the country’s security, freedom and democracy. But what happens when they themselves become victims of abuse and harassment, because of their job? The police are additionally protected by law when they are attacked in their uniform at work and this means an attack should be faced with punishment accordingly.

The police force is a group in society who is more exposed to violence and who are trained how to deal with aggressive and threatening situations. Therefore, the tolerance level is expected to be much higher among the police and because of this, it can be more difficult for them to receive fair compensation when they have been attacked. This thesis aims to show the difficulties the police can face when declaiming compensation for work related attacks. The thesis also intends to investigate under what circumstances a policeman can get compensation.  

The study will immerse in and analyse Swedish law together with case law, investigating if the courts lack consistency in their judgment whether or not the police should be entitled to compensation. In order to answer the study’s research questions, a legal dogmatic method has been used.
