The study also aimed to investigate how the employees experience the safety and security conditions at the court. A total of 54 participants of the 77 employees at the court participated in a web-based survey. To complete the study, interviews were held with security guards working at the court. The theoretical frame of the study is founded on norm theories emanated from Håkan Hydén (2002) and Matthias Baier and Måns Svensson (2009).

The main finding of this study is that professional norms regarding safety and security was identified among the employees at the court. Although professional norms were identified, they were not robust nor cohesive across the different professions within the court. The study also found that the majority of the employees at the court experience that the safety and security conditions connected to their occupation are at a satisfying level. (Less)
