“If I See Something in the Registers, then I Stop” : A Qualitative Interview Study regarding Swedish Police Officers in the work with Traffic stops (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka erfarenheter svenska poliser har av arbetet med fordonsstopp och vilka premisser de utgår från vid beslut om att kontrollera fordon i trafiken. Genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem poliser, framkom att de överlag hade svårt att besvara frågan gällande vilka erfarenheter de har av arbetet med fordonsstopp. Resultatet tyder på att dessa erfarenheter gör arbetet lättare för poliserna, samtidigt upplevs erfarenheterna kunna resultera i oönskade beteenden. Deras erfarenheter är också att arbetet har utvecklats med åren. Utöver lagöverträdelser, verkade inte några klargjorda premisser gällande beslut om fordonsstopp finnas. Trots detta uppgav deltagarna liknande premisser, såsom trafikförseelser, underrättelseinformation och känslan av att något inte står rätt till.  I samband med fordonsstopp sker selekteringen inför beslutsfattandet genom allmän profilering och något poliser benämner byggstenar. Det förekom dock delade uppfattningar om vad som format deras premisser.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine what experience Swedish police officers have of traffic stops and on which premises they decide to control a vehicle in traffic. Through semi structured interviews with five police officers, it appeared that they generally had difficulties in answering questions regarding their experience of traffic stops. The results indicate that these experiences seem to facilitate the work for the policemen, simultaneously the experiences appear to result in unwanted behaviour. Their experiences are that the work have developed through the years. Beyond delinquency, there seems to be no clear premises regarding decision making in traffic stops. Despite that the participants stated similar premises, among others; traffic violence, intelligence information and the feeling that something doesn't feel right. Associated with traffic stops the selection for decision making is done by general profiling and something that police officers refers to as building blocks. However, there were different opinions regarding what have formed their premises.
