The purpose of this study is to identify whether there has been any change during this period of time in the way the Swedish Police prioritizes their activities from a NPM perspective. While NPM is a somewhat broad term, we are looking into specific aspects of NPM that are linked to the concepts of ’output’ and ’outcome’. The analysis is based on public documents extending over 2012, 2014 and 2015, issued by the Swedish government and the Swedish Police. The results of this study show that a change from ’output’ towards ’outcome’ has occured in the way the the police is governed. This change is particularly significant between 2014 and 2015 (Less)
