Publication: Tryggare kan ingen vara?  (In Swedish)

In this project we are interested in whether and how different groups of uniformed individuals can be used in safety promoting work.

We have recently conducted a study among more than 300 people ages 18-69 in which we asked questions such as: Do people feel safe in the presence of foot patrolling police officers? A "patrolling" police car? Security guards? Police volunteers? The study will be published in 2015 by the National Police Department (RPS) and also internationally later during 2015.
