Abstract [en]

Police presence on social media in Sweden has grown in recent years. New social networking tools have resulted in changes of practice in communication. This qualitative study examines how one local Police department in Sweden presents themselves on Facebook. Drawing on critical discourse analysis this paper focuses on uncovering personal values and power relations in various Police discourses but also how identity is shaped. Analyzing one year of Facebook posts from Polisen Södermalm, we identified several thematic discourses and found that content in the informal discourse reproduce some values not supported by policy or principles of public servantship. Our study contributes with qualitative analysis and findings in a field that still needs more work.
