Facebook - a crime preventive tool? : The police departments crime preventive work by using Facebook (English)
Abstract [sv]

Internetanvändandet ökar och så gör även anmälningar om att brott har skett ”online”. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka hur polisens brottsförebyggande arbete ser ut på Facebook. Uppsatsen visar genom ett utskick av enkäter på vad polisen har för arbetsmetoder när det kommer till Facebook. Tidigare forskning tyder på att kriminaliteten har blivit allt större ”online”. Resultaten som sammanställts tyder på att det är svårt att förhindra brott via Facebook idag. Respondenterna ansåg i första hand att förhindra brott innebar att publicera allmän information, vilket de också ansåg vara det mest effektiva sättet. Polisen visar att de finns tillgängliga för allmänheten vilket leder till trygghet och en bättre tillit hos samhället. Via Facebook skapar man en slags kommunikation mellan polis och allmänhet. Dels för att kontrollera att inga brott begås men också för att skapa en bättre kontakt med allmänheten.

Abstract [en]

Internet use increases and so does the notifications that the of crime have been "online". The purpose of this paper is to examine how the police crime prevention looks on Facebook. The essay shows through a mailing of questionnaires on what police have to practice when it comes to Facebook. Previous research suggests that crime has become increasingly "online". Results collected suggest that it is difficult to prevent crime via Facebook today. Respondents considered primarily to prevent crimes meant to publish general information, which they also considered to be the most effective way. The police shows that they are available to the public, which leads to a higher sense of security and a better trust from the society. Through Facebook you can create a kind of communication between the police and the public. Partly, to ensure that no crime is committed but also to create a better contact with the public.
