The stewards are accused of provoking violence

Many stewards in krogvärlden looking for a reason to use violence – it says Christer Silfverberg. He has worked at restaurants in Stockholm city centre for over 15 years.

" I have refused people at the door on the wrong grounds. It is just to admit, " he says.

Mainly he turns towards some of the stewards themselves, provoking situations where they may use violence. According to Christer Silfverberg, it can be done, for example, by ordningsvakten set themselves extremely close to a person in the queue. If the person in question, then touch the guard so will consequence directly.

" Yes, when are you the down. You go down directly, " he says, referring to the guards in this situation, quickly transitioning to the use of force and brotta down the ”unruly” individual.

the behavior with the provocation in combination with to solve situations with violence is very common among the stewards – both in krogkön but also in public transport.


the DN has spoken with a 15-odd stewards and other persons with good knowledge of the industry, and the descriptions of how the stewards in the krogmiljön regularly use provocations is a recurring theme.

But also the stewards of the public transport and in shopping malls reported recurrence transgress their powers and partly to provoke reactions from those they deal with, and secondly, the unjustified use of violence and threatening behaviour.

want to be anonymous and work in public transport, stating ”easily 70 percent” of the ordningsvakterna have the correct sense in the work, and quickly goes over to use violence instead of solving the situations verbally.

– Their behaviour, it puts the entire industry at stake, " he says.

Two other stewards appreciate independently of each other to ”more than 50 per cent” of those who are active in the profession is abusing its power through unjustified use of force.

in Addition to the evidence from the stewards and others in the industry also has the public heard of to DN with similar tasks. Several people have mejlat stories about the guards who will by verbal or physical provocation, or very quickly go over to an unjustified intervention.


by going Through all of the total of 208 complaints from the public that has been registered with SL regarding the stewards, in 2018, can DN now broaden the picture of the allegations that the stewards use provocations and threatening behavior as a method.

notified an event at Fridhemsplan in July where two guards should have behaved ”violent and degrading” against a drunk person who they would evict. The guards shall, inter alia, have passed after the person said ”what are you doing here?” and ”you must not be here”.

When the person questions the guards, they should have said ”are you cocky or what?”. Subsequently, the said two plaintiffs to one of the guards took hold of the nose of the person, and began turning on and also threw a person's hat on the floor.

A woman said in september that the stewards at a ticket inspection was menacing and stood in a ring around a guy who was ”very scared”. But when a woman offered to pay the guy's ticket to a security guard asking why the woman ”has attitude to ordningsvakterna”, and then taken a ”strongly hold” on her and dragged her out.

Then they should have turned up arms behind her back until she began to cry, and then left her ”in shock” but to allow her to travel further. Several travelers reported to have shouted to the guards to release the woman.

from the december reports of a man how two stewards have stepped on tunnelbanevagnen at Gullmarsplan, pointed him out and said that he must leave the cart.

the Guards must have justified it with he corresponds to the signalementet of someone they are looking for a crime. But when the man consistently denied the accusation to the guards ' claims have become increasingly fuzzy, and the man and his friend say they got ”the impression that the whole thing is fictional”.

Then ordningsvakterna suddenly in the place distant man that he was ”too drunk to ride the subway” and come up with accusations that the man has taken drugs. The guards, who is reported to have been ”fun at work”, shall then be led out the man from the station.


Gradually dropped Christer Silfverberg will to act on the conditions established in the krogbranschen, and a few years ago he made his last day as entrévärd.

a major reason for the stewards criticised the behaviour in krogbranschen has to do with krögarna requires that some people – or peoples – should not get in to the tavern, and the guards who do not follow the prompts did not get the job on the spot in the future.

– In the best of worlds, it is said the no to krögarens requirements. But then you lose the door. It is after all a very small world, and burn it in a door so it's probably difficult to get a job elsewhere.

to come to grips with the problems of the industry says Christer Silfverberg, several things need to be corrected. First, you must krogägarna take responsibility and not make demands that certain ethnic groups should not get in to the tavern.

secondly, the need For training to become a security guard be longer than the current 80 hours – and in addition have admission to be able to sort out unsuitable individuals.

Silfverberg older guards generally do a better job, and that the age limit for their appointment should be raised.

– Looking in the doors in the day so have the guys barely moved away from home. But it is a way for krögarna to keep down the wages also, to hire younger people. But then you get what you get also.

Nowadays, Christer Silfverberg remorseful over his past behavior and hope for an improvement among their colleagues.

" But I shall not cut across the industry. If a person does something really bad, it receives a lot of attention and so may all suffer. Not everything is bad in the industry. But idiots are there, and there are plenty of them.
