Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to examine how child investigators in the police force interpret and apply the notification of preliminary investigation (FuK) and the po-lice act in their child investigative interviews with alleged victims of sexual abuse. Questions at issue were how child investigators relate to FuK 17-19 §§, re-garding child investigative interviews and to FuK 16 § and the police act 3 §, re-garding their co-operation with social services. The theory and method used in this study was Sociology of Law. Qualitative interviews were conducted with eight child investigators, one from each police district in Stockholm. The results of the study conclude that despite special qualifications, child investigators may find themselves in difficulty in receiving or interpreting information from chil-dren, therefore they may need to consult a person with expert knowledge. Fur-thermore the results conclude that all of the child investigators with no exception inform the social services when a report to the police is received. Moreover, the results show that child investigators in general are aware of the legislation and re-late in compliance with it. In conclusion, children are given special treatment in relation to adults, in order to place children on equality with them.
