"an Increase in crime among young people explains a doubling of the number of arrests carried out by stewards and security officers, considers the trade association security companies. But experts in the field believe it is more to guards and guards to a greater extent carry out the work of the police."
"Systematic theft from shops is that becomes increasingly coarser in nature and a samhällstrend with increased juvenile delinquency. It is Säkerhetsföretagens branch manager Li Jansson's explanation to the stewards and guardians, in 2018, doubling the number of arrests. Experts on juvenile delinquency have a different opinion."
"– the Use of security guards has increased, and the replacement of the police in many places. It is done in places where it collected many of the young people and where there is sometimes drogförsäljning. Perhaps it is now the guardians who are first on the scene and not the police, " says Camila Salazar Atías, working within the fryshuset community projects Cides with issues relating to youth and crime."
"Felipe Estrada is a professor in criminology at Stockholm university and has done research on young people and crime. He thinks that it is interesting that the number of arrests carried out by stewards and security guards has increased, but writes in an email to TT that he is not aware of any research that shows that the crime rate among young people would have doubled:"
"The recent past, several violent väktarinsatser attracted the attention of the media. In their meetings with young people has Camila Salazar Atías known of a change in the attitude to the stewards."
"– I feel that many young people have a greater contempt for the guardian, the very basis of the videotaped assault, which has attracted the attention of the media. You feel that there is a said limit when the guardians are involved than with the police. Among the young people that I meet there is an increased suspicion towards the guardians, " she says."
"From the security industry is not unaware of the problem. Karl Sandberg, human resources manager at the company Nokas, points out that the relationship between the stewards and the people who live and work in areas where the patrol is one of the most important tools in their work."
"– we must not forget that youth is one of the most vulnerable groups in society. Our mission is to protect young people. If our stewards face an aggressive attitude from the young people as they often say, "
"Nokas has a large contract with the city of Stockholm with the mission to maintain order in the 30 areas on the public place. Karl Sandberg stresses that the company invests in training their guards in addition to the requirements of the law."
"the Police department is responsible for the training, regulation and supervision of the stewards."
"the Stewards may dispose of the persons who is drunk or behaves in a disorderly manner in a public place. The stewards shall in the first instance try to talk people grips but have the power to use force if the task can not be solved in another way."
"security guards can only do envarsgripande, thus, in the same way as anyone in the society. This means that it grabs someone who has committed a crime that can be punished with imprisonment. The arrest shall either take place during an ongoing crime or where the gärningspersonen is on the fleeing foot."
"the County board is the authority responsible for the guardian."
