Crime prevention through urban design in libraries (English)
Abstract [sv]

I denna rapport genomfördes en studie på fem folkbibliotek* i Stockholmsregionen, där bibliotekensomgivning och deras inre fysiska miljö undersöktes. Studien utfördes genom att besöka biblioteken där enbesiktning utfördes med hjälp av ett protokoll skapat utifrån teoretiska principer om situationellbrottsprevention och Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED). Syftet med studien är attbedöma om, och hur biblioteken anpassats och följer principerna för brottsförebyggande design enligt CPTED.Resultatet från protokollet analyserades med hjälp av kalkylblad och diagram i staplar och i procent. För attjämföra biblioteken samlades resultaten för de olika kategorierna i en tabell där alla kategorier adderades förvarje bibliotek. Resultaten visade att bibliotek B har flest brottsförebyggande egenskaper enligt CPTED ochatt bibliotek E har minst. Även om samtliga bibliotek följer CPTED-principerna till viss del, är denyrenoverade biblioteken mer i linje med CPTED-principerna än äldre bibliotek. Således kan en viktig slutsatsdras, vilket är att säkerhets- och situationsbrottsförebyggande perspektiv i planeringen blir en integrerad delav arkitekternas sätt att planera och rusta upp befintliga folkbibliotek.

*För att undvika stigmatisering döptes de fem folkbiblioteken i Stockholmsregionen om till biblioteken A-E.

Abstract [en]

In this study, a fieldwork was carried out in five public libraries* in the Stockholm region, where the librariessurroundings and their internal physical environment were investigated. A fieldwork was executed by visitingthe libraries where an inspection was carried out using a protocol created based on theoretical principles ofsituational crime prevention and Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED). The aim of theinvestigation was to assess whether and how the environment of the libraries promotes safety conditions forvisitors. The collected data was analyzed using spreadsheets and diagrams in bars and in percentages. In orderto compare the libraries, results were tabulated for the equal categories and added together for each library.Findings showed that library B contains most of crime prevention properties according to CPTED principlesand that library E, the least. Although all five libraries follow to some extent CPTED principles, newlyrenovated ones are more aligned with CPTED principles than older libraries. Thus, an important conclusioncan be drawn is that safety and situational crime prevention perspectives in planning are becoming an integralpart of the way architects plan and refurbish existent public libraries.

*To avoid stigmatization, the five public libraries in Stockholm region were renamed as libraries A-E.
