Abstract [sv]

Artikelns syfte är att belysa den psykiska hälsan hos svenska poliser som arbetar i yttre tjänst. Polisernas psykiska hälsa är ett viktigt forskningsområde med tanke på hur polisen arbetar i samhället. Att utföra enkla och svåra arbetsuppgifter ställer höga krav på polisens mentala processer. I den här artikeln uppmärksammar vi poliser i yttre tjänst som arbetar i särskilt utsatta områden i Stockholmregionen. Det självskattade frågeformuläret DSM-5 om psykisk hälsa har insamlats och analyserats med hjälp av beskrivande statistik. Resultatet visar att stigande ålder och att leva i en parrelation är skyddsfaktorer mot psykisk ohälsa hos dessa poliser.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the article is to shed light on the Swedish patrolling police officers’ mental health. The mental health of the police is an important area of research since they act in society as a grant for safety and security. Performing simple and difficult tasks places high demands on the mental processes of the police. In this article we pay attention to patrolling police officers who works in particularly vulnerable areas in Stockholm region. Self-assessed DSM-5 questionnaire on mental health was collected and analyzed with descriptive statistics. The results show that rising age and living in relationships are protective factors against mental illness in these police officers.
