Surveys where the public is asked about exposure to crime, insecurity and trust in the police are important in the local crime prevention and safety-creating work.

Safety surveys are one form of dialogue between the residents and the police - people are given the opportunity to tell about the problems that exist in the area where they live.
Results from the surveys are used as a basis in producing a picture of the local situation and as a tool in the processes of collaboration agreements between the police and the municipality.
The surveys are used in the follow-up and evaluation of measures taken.
The research collaboration between the Centre for Police Research and Development (CPU) and the Police Authority is long-term and aims to strengthen the knowledge-based crime prevention and the safety-creating work.
