Abstract [en]

In 2015 the Swedish police integrated what was a highly decentralized and territorially diverse administrative organization into a new, single government agency. The goals of this encompassing administrative change were to increase the overall quality of police work, ncrease cost efficiency, create more structural flexibility and to improve the overall level of performance in Swedish policing. The achievement of higher levels of efficiency was emphasized as the core purpose of reform.

In our presentation, we argue that the tension between political and legal first principles in Swedish policing goes beyond organizational reform. The Swedish police cannot share the monopoly of legitimate civil violence, nor the task of bringing citizens into the criminal process. Therefore, many pitfalls and contradictions pertaining to police work emanate from the inescapable cross-pressure of policy making and the Swedish legal system. We find that police practices, as opposed to organizational principles, will decide the relative success of current reform. We also argue that efficiency is a fuzzy reform concept, which must be balanced against other core democratic and legal values to gain and maintain legitimacy for the power of policing in Sweden.
