Many researchers in social work believe that in today's society require the interaction between organisations takes place on social problems. This study examined the interaction between the police, social services and schools.

The purpose of this study are as follows; the aim is to investigate the interaction between social services, the police and schools about young people aged 12-18 years who are at risk for abuse and crime.

My questions are: How do the different professions interact regarding young people at risk for abuse and crime? How do they meet young people in their daily work? What obstacles can the different professions see in interaction? What effects do the different professions see in interaction?

The study is a qualitative study conducted with semi-structured interviews. Respondents have been two from each organisation.

The theory used in the analysis of empirical data is new-institutionalismen. New-institutionalism is a theory developed from organizational theories. Research emanating from organizations influence from the outside world has been designated a new - institutionalism. The new institutionalism is based on individuals, and environmental impact on the organization, as well as their interaction

The results of the study mean that different privacy laws are an obstacle in the interaction and also lack of resources is a barrier. This study also shows a positive attitude towards interaction between the different organizations.
