dc.description.abstractAims and objectives: Previous research highlights the need for following up and evaluating the methods and operations that are currently in use to prevent the purchase of sexual services. With regards to the police as street-level bureaucrats with discretion that allows them to, a certain degree, delegate their work, this study aims to add insight in how policemen and policewomen in Gothenburg perceive the efforts against prostitution. The areas that are of focus in the study are mainly work methods, experiences of collaboration and the significance of the personal commitment in regards to this work. Method and data: The study was conducted by qualitative semi-structured interviews with twelve policemen and policewomen that have participated or actively participate in efforts against prostitution in Gothenburg, Sweden. The interviews took place between the time period of March 2022 and May 2022. Results: The results indicate that much of the police's work against prostitution is characterized by the special circumstances that define the work of street-level bureaucrats, including chronically insufficient resources and involuntary clients. In addition, the police's discretion enables individuals' involvement in the work, which is of importance for both action measures within each local police area as well as collaboration with external actors in the efforts against prostitution.en_US
