The reorganization resulted in a rephrasing of the governing law, that stated that the policemen now are answering to „Polismyndigheten‟, rather than the separate „Polismyndigheterna‟. This study aims to investigate experiences from individual employees of the organization concerning the reorganization, and if the border controls have had any considerable impact on the implementation. Through qualitative interviews with five different policemen our thesis resulted in a presentation of what they have experienced to be the most critical problems and how the reorganization and border controls had influenced their day to day tasks. We have analyzed the result from an organizational theory perspective and our main finds was that the policemen‟s experience might be strongly influenced by the different ways of thinking in an organization, either from an instrumental perspective with effectiveness as the main focus or - more commonly - a cultural perspective.
