Victimization, fear of crime and public confidence in the criminal justice system
The Swedish Crime Survey covers a broad range of issues. This report presents the overall results relating to victimization, fear of crime and public confidence in the criminal justice system.-
The report is a summary of the Swedish report 2010:2. It contains few detailed analyses or explanations of the findings presented. In depth studies of this sort are instead presented separately in the form of special studies. Recent examples include studies on domestic violence against men and women, young people's confidence in the criminal justice system and crime victims' experiences of their contacts with the criminal justice system (Brå reports 2009:12, 2009:20 and 2010:1).
Knowledge of victimization, fear of crime and public confidence provides an important basis for developing and improving the criminal justice system and other agencies, and may help to reduce crime and increase perceptions of safety.
