How do the police prevention methods work against juvenile delinquency? The purpose of this study is to see how the police work to prevent juvenile delinquency in two municipalities in Stockholm, Södertälje and Sundbyberg. Additionally, the purpose of this study is also to find out if there are any similarities or differences between the police methods the police use in these two municipalities. We have used qualitative method in which we have interviewed the police and young people from the communities. We interviewed young people to see their attitudes to the police and the area to find their perception of police work in the fields as well as the police forces attitude toward the young people. Our theories revolve around police methods of prevention, stigma, labeling and social ecological condition. The study also shows differences between the municipalities, such as local socio-economic conditions, segregation and unemployment. The result shows that some of the young people’s answers vary. A few people said that the police are doing a good job while others thought that the police had a prejudiced view against them because of their ethnicity. On the contrary the police believe they are doing a good job and they have no idea why young people have this point of view.
