Ask a Swedish authority-worker anything

I work as a security guard in Malmö, Sweden. My main task is to travel by car and do outer and/or inner controls of schools and other public buildings in Malmö over night. (Usually from 18 to 06, 12 h shift). I also work stationary at events and in public places together with police and other guards. A week back I was death-threatened in Rosengård (Well known area in Malmö where lots of stuff happens). Since there has been a lot of controversy about Sweden recently and its criminality, and some people on the forum seemed to be interested in my job, I figured I could share anything thats legal for me to share with you in this site. So you can ask me anything that you wonder about my job and I will do my best to answer it for you. Well met!

How am I busted? I'm new to the job and I didnt know there were more than one company guarding these areas, since Ive seen other signs from other companies too. It doesnt hurt to ask. Also I didnt feel like I wanted to tell what company and what places I guarded, since thats pretty much against the rules. Now you pretty much know which company I work for though but stop acting like you "busted" me. What reason would I have to make a whole thread with long and detailed answers to peoples questions and talk good about the job if I wasnt working there? I dont understand your logic. För den som hängde på i Rosengård så kanske vi ses nån gång då. ^^
2019-06-12 14:52
Du kanske inte borde skriva "Det är ju inte bara AVARN som ronderar skolor väl?". Eftersom det är bara dem som gör det. So yes you are busted.

Ja men om det bara finns ett företag som arbetar inom säkerhet i Malmö och han inte vet de. Hur arbetar han då som vakt där? Är du helt dum i huvudet eller?
2019-06-12 18:19
Han kanske jobbar där men trodde att t.ex. G4S fortfarande vaktar andra skolor? Är du ...?
2019-06-12 19:09
G4S är AVARN security, G4S såldes till Sector Alarm då han ville kunna erbjuda fria ryck till sina hem larm och skapa en egen bevaknings firma vilket blev (AVARN), nu har han dock sålt AVARN till Nokas och från och med inom kort kommer AVARN att försvinna och kommer vara nokas. Sen när det gäller till rondering på Malmö stads skolor ( inte privata) är det endast AVARN som utför dem. Då som sagt de har Malmö Stads kontraktet, sen vännen DEFENSE att berätta var man jobbar och vilket företag man jobbar på är inte '' against the rules ''.

because it isn't accurate at all and people still call it "historical", it promotes degeneracy on all levels, scenes like a girl pissing on the main characters wounds to 'heal' them, taking drugs and getting hallucinations of a better life, alsolutely retarded human sacrifice scenes, drinking animal blood, lesbian scenes. the average fan of the series "holy fukkkk Vikangz so badassss, ahh that blood eagle scene shittt, im related to Rangar!!!!!" also includes strong women fighting on par with Vikings in those times.

Yes, of course. It would be silly if I wouldnt be allowed to do that. Believe me, we can't really take into consideration all that controversy about racism and stuff. People arent allowed to work as a security guard or police if they have for example any religious symbols on them which they refrain from hiding in their job. We need to stay 100 % neutral so that no unessecary pressure will be added to any situation. But yeah, we are allowed to say whatever helps identify the criminal. So if he or she is black, we can say that too. Asian? No problem either!

Weirdest incident you ever had? And how do immigrants actually behave?
2019-06-11 23:03
#26
 | 
Sweden DEFENSE! 
"Weird" incidents I havent had too many of. Except for when my boss told me there was no baton available so I had to do the entire night shift in the dark areas of Malmö without any weapon whatsoever. And once when I was patrolling a big TV-screen in central Malmö over night there were two people who started fighting and one guy stole the others speaker and ran away quick as hell. The same night, two homeless people decided to take shelter over night (since it was raining) literally around the corner from where I was sitting and guarding. I waved at them whenever they went by because actually its none of my business to report them staying there and I felt morally obliged to let them stay in a covered place over night so they could survive. After a couple of hours a guy (they were 2 people, presumably a couple, one guy and one woman) came to me and asked if it was OK if they slept there. He was heavily drunk. I said yes and he said he would finally have a good nights sleep since he felt really safe that I was sitting there right next to them. It felt really good that night and the shift went by easily when I heard them snoozing away under the roof while it was raining like hell outside. I've had more SCARY situations than weird ones. But you meet so many people, there is always something happening. ^^

The spectrum of "respect" is much wider with immigrants. Ethnic swedes dont even bother speaking to me. They just obey, pretty much. Immigrants either hate you or love you. They have stronger feelings in general. Either they scream at you and tell you to go kill yourself or they come up to you (Ive had so many encounters on schools and stuff, with students who are soooo nice and funny to speak to) and ask if you can lend them your baton and/or just joke around and ask how your day is. Its really nice usually.

Sweden DEFENSE! 
Ive learnt a lot in my education how to deal with people who are aggressive and so on. But we never get any instructions to treat immigrants differently. I would imagine that in general we perhaps mentally prepare ourselves differently simply because out of experience we know they can be more emotional towards us. But yeah the education and government doesnt say anything about that, it would be slightly racist if you ask me.

Oh, I forgot the immigrants part. Most immigrants behave well just like everyone else. Its mostly in the suburbs and segregated areas that they really hate you. But its not as bad as media may illustrate it as as far as Ive experienced. I might have been lucky though. Since I work only at night I dont see THAT many people. When I work, I sleep when everyone else is awake. xD
2019-06-11 23:17
Is the sleep schedule hard for you and do you wake up just before work or go to sleep right after work? (so when do you have your free time off work?)
2019-06-11 23:24
#36
 | 
Sweden DEFENSE! 
The sleep schedule is a pain in the ass. I dont think I mentioned it but this fall I'm planning on quitting entirely. Usually I work from 18 to 06. Its alright, if I sleep to like 12 AM I can do that without an issue. But because I dont work full time I have many days off and my social life would collapse completely if I didnt turn it around again. (otherwise I would literally be a freaking bat who slept whenever it was bright and everyone was awake). Sometimes I have a shift from 23:00 to 09:00. Thats the hard one. I used to work at the post office before and I got up at 6 AM every day. It fits me perfectly, Im definitely a morning person. So I literally cant sleep for longer than like 11 or 12 AM. And neither can I take naps during the day because thats not how I function. So whenever I have a 23-09 shift I usually stay up for 24 hours altogether. Its not healthy, I know, but luckily it wont be for much longer. Some people love it. And its easy for them because it suits their sleep schedule. Im just not a night person. I dont think it will ever be that way. I do like the 18-06 shifts because I am in constant movement, it makes me stay awake rather than just sitting down stationary (which I normally do in the 23-09 shift). Im not gonna lie, I always have an energy drink at around 3 AM to keep me alert. After all, Im driving around in a car that belongs to the company and I need to stay put for any dangers. Whenever I work night shift I go to sleep whenever I get home. (I just grab something to eat and then immediately go to bed). Its sometimes hard because its so bright outside, but normally I make my room as dark as I can and I just lay down, and in about 20 mins im asleep. After all I often stay up for longer when I have my night shifts, so I am usually knackered when I finally get home. But yeah TLDR I hate the night shifts. Because the job is very fun it evens up. But mentally I dont feel on top most of the time. Its something with the day that just makes me feel so good, and if I cannot experience that, I start feeling anxious.

Well, its more dangerous than many jobs. But often you are just a subject to harassment and such which is easy to just ignore. It's obviously more dangerous to work as police, as they work more with people than I do. But the risks you can be put in, the responsibility you have and situations with a lot of pressure sure is part of this job. But its always worth it, I would say. You really do something thats needed and you help many people.

I'm allowed to have a baton, which is part of my gear. Thats the only "weapon" im allowed to have, and use. I am also allowed to have shackles on special occasions. Usual civilians arent allowed to have any form of knife or any object which could be meant to harm anyone in public. So that could also be a baton, meaning thats illegal for them to walk around with. There are of course exceptions. For example carpenters are allowed to wear knives and sharp objects in their belt when they are working.
2019-06-12 01:08
so, no firearms at all? in russia civilians can own airsoft/hunting firearms with a license
2019-06-12 12:33

Sweden DEFENSE! 
Civilians can own firearms if they have a licence of course. That however only includes a hunter's license. So there is no license that allows civilians to walk around with firearms in public or own a gun if its not meant to be used for hunting. But walking around with it in public areas is not allowed, which is what I meant. Same goes for knives, sharp objects and hammers and such. The law says the following: Knives, sharp objects and other objects meant to be used as weapons in crimes involving damage to another civilians life or health is not allowed in public places, schools, or in vehicles in public places. However, it is not forbidden if any of these objects are part of gear in a persons occupation, for example carpenters or MY occupation where I'm allowed to have a baton. Hope that helps

why is it on one hand the swedes says sweden is over and doomed, and the other half say there is no problem whatsoever at all? is it really so polarized or just on the internet?

Those who say Sweden is doomed have probably been either very unlucky and has been subject to negative situations or they just blindly believe what the internet says which I would say is not true. People can speculate freely and tend to explain things in a manner so that it sounds worse than it is. Racism is a big factor, and people are genuinely scared and can say things they have no idea about. For example, if you would be robbed or threatened and you had racist thoughts even before that, this can make you very emotional and go wiiiild over the internet on how bad things are. On the other hand, those who say there is no problem whatsoever is not right either. Those people have probably never experienced anything and live in their rich neighborhood and dont follow up on the news very much. Its obvious that Sweden has a serious problem with segregation. We need to find a way to establish immigrants and poor people into the society in a real way. Not put them in a separate area. This leads to heterogenous societies where criminality will rise due to a lack of communication, collective strength and different moralities and religions. Its not an easy task. But I mean, we do have a problem. The immigration is not the problem, the segregation that follows is. I genuinely feel bad for many of the people living in these areas, even though they hate me.
2019-06-12 01:17
Don't you get frustrated as hell when you are continuously surrounded by people that hate you because you don't share the same background? I can't imagine doing a job where you have to take shit daily from people who aren't even from your country or contribute positively to your society.

I dont get shit daily. It doesnt happen that often, most of the time people regardless of nationality appreciate my job and are kind if they actually speak to me at all. I would argue that many people dont even bother speaking to me when they see me. Kids will always be kids and they say hello and ask about my baton and my job and stuff, but you dont see many adults outside during night. Generally I have got a lot of positive thoughts about my job and many people are interested in it. Its way more positive stuff than negative, and I never regret taking it. We have been getting criticism, but it rarely happens face to face. Cops get that way more. As I said, I dont work that much with people in general. I often guard buildings and stuff, thats my main task.

There will always be somewhat of a contempt against authority. But TLDR most people appreciate what I do and are genuinely nice to me.

Vad säger du om väktares ständiga jävla övertramp? Sveriges mest obegåvade yrkesgrupp?

Du får gärna länka mig ett scenario där en väktare överdriver. Alla väktare är utbildade och har gått genom massvis med tester för att se om de passar i yrket. Ibland kanske det ser ut som att de "överdriver", men i 99 % av fallen har de lagstöd för vad de gör. Det som visas i media och liknande går inte att lita på eftersom vi aldrig får se vad som hände innan. Väktare går inte fram till någon och griper dem. De måste ha gjort någonting. Dessutom så blandar många, troligen inklusive du, ihop ordningsvakter och väktare. Ordningsvakter jobbar hand i hand med polisen och har rätt att tex omhänderta någon enligt LOB (Lagen om omhändertagande av berusade) eller om de misstänker något i allmänhet. Därav blir det oftast att det inte ser ut som personen i fråga har "gjort något" för allmänheten, men eftersom de inte följer ordningsvakters instruktioner och stretar emot gör de bara det värre för sig själva, och en väldigt liten situation kan bli större i onödan.

Ik i'm comparing a trash country to a good economic country but talking again about the salary, a full time really gets 2500-3000 USD per month? that's actually insane considering that in Romania you get with some luck around 500 eur per month. Oh and about the program, is 2 days free time, 1 24h working. I'm not working here, but i have a friend who does this. My question: What's the lowest regular(i guess u are too but.. idk ) security guard salary can get? Personally i want to move in Sweden too, i'm 2nd year in Computer science and my plan in the future is to get a job in Stockholm, such a nice city. (Yes i travelled there)

Well, when you start working as a security guard you have a first time salary during your test period. This is about the same I made at the post office full time. Its roughly 2,300 USD but after tax thats like 1,800 USD. You can live off of that but its pretty much among the lowest paid jobs you can have full time. I genuinely feel like police and guards get paid too little if you look at what they actually do. If you can move to Sweden do it. You will never regret it. As long as you get a job and a house, its paradise compared to Romania, I can Imagine.
2019-06-12 01:21
Yeah well i'm targeting a lot being a programmer so yeah there should be some good salary comparing to our country. And a better program at work. You guys have one of the most friendly people out there, especially girls lol xD Talking about the salary of police and guards, you're saying that the salary is not that much for police and guards? Think that in our country both of them almost like literally almost share the same salary. (around 500 eur to max ... 700 eur) . Maybe a little bit much on the police side, but not so much. And those who are saying that living in Sweden is more costly than here... well.. maybe by a margin of 10% -15% .. yeah.(And yeah it's not a great country)

Well, I think its a little unfair, but its also because police work under the government. An electrician who sits on his ass half of the day who works for a private company can get like 4,000 USD a month easily. Then we have cops who make less than I did delivering letters to people when they actually keep order in our country. Its been a long discussed topic that police make too little. Yeah dude, Romania seems a little wacky with what you presented. You're better off here, then. Good luck :)

Hi, travelling to Sweden soon, got a few questions. Do you consider Malmö to be a safe place to live in? What's the scariest situation you've been in? How does Gothenburg compare to Malmö? I've heard the crime rates etcetera are pretty similar. Good luck on the job men)

1. Yes. And its a wonderful, blooming town with lots of stuff to do. 2. I havent had a super scary situation yet but it was probably when I was threatened by a group of 16 year olds who said they were going to stomp my head if I came back. Probably just words, but you know, makes you uneasy. 3. I have no idea about Gothenburg. Ive only been there for vacation a couple of times and I am not updated about the situation there, sorry.

2019-06-12 12:02
were those 16 year olds swedish or refugees?
2019-06-12 14:25
Genreally you will always be safe if you stay in central areas of town, and i assume you dont intend to visit the shady parts anyways. However if you compare Malmö to Stockholm for instance, the ”bad” parts of town are much more central than what they are in Stockholm. Luckily, if you are used to travelling you will be able to tell when a person is up to no good- and just avoid the situation.

Gothenburg is more "safe" than Malmö, 0 death shootings 2019

I know what point you're trying to make, tons of European hltv users have tried to make it before but I hope you understand that it's just not the same when comparing countries like mine to countries like Poland, Lithuania, Hungary etc. The gap in everything is nowhere near as large for you so I can understand why you'd say that people should stay in their home countries.

Its not stressful. Its actually quite chill and pleasing most of the time to walk around in town at 3 AM when everyone else is sleeping. I am somewhat of an introvert and I appreciate the time I can have for myself and reflect on my life and whatnot. I never think the way you stated. You need to have a lot of respect for the darkness and always be alert for any dangers, even though they rarely happen. But I never walk around scared, really. In a way I feel quite safe and respected because I'm wearing a uniform. I have the law on my side, if someone decides to jump me or something, they will pay the price.

2019-06-12 14:40
14 usd/hour?! That's fucked up for your job, imo. It's nearly impossible to find a job in Denmark, where you get paid less than 14 usd/hour, unless you're under 18 y/o. Why is the salary so low for such a job? Don't you have strong unions for workers in Sweden? Btw, you sound like a really cool guy!
2019-06-12 14:33
#142
 | 
Sweden DEFENSE! 
Well, as I mentioned, the first 6 months or so you get paid around that amount because you're in a test period. Then you start making more like 16 usd per hour. The salary is not really a big problem for me since you can easily live on that, but its been a well discussed topic for years that those in the security sector, including the police, dont make enough. If you are having trouble finding a job in Sweden, security guard is always a good option, as long as you have any form of notable work experience and a driving license. And as long as you're ready to work night. ^^ Obviously there are many personality tests you need to go through, and you cannot take drugs or have a criminal past and stuff like that. Thank you my friend!
2019-06-12 14:43
Thanks for the explanation :) You're saying that you make $14/usd for night work?! You don't get paid extra for night work?

I'm not sure since I'm rather new to the job but I know that we get something called OB which is extra payment for like weekends and special holidays. I dont know about getting extra when working night though, since its pretty standard in this job. 85 % of all security guard jobs are in nighttime, as our job is usually to secure areas when everyone else is sleeping and can not be present.
2019-06-12 14:48
It just sounds crazy to me, i though all the nordic countries had relativ same high salarys. A newbie Mcdonalds worker in Denmark, make about $18/hour. On top of that, you will get: - working on sundays = add $4/hour - working on saturdays = add $3/hour - working after 18.00 = add $3/hour - working after 2.00(0.00 in the weekends) = add $6/hour

Well, Denmark has always been richer than Sweden. One Danish Crown is worth almost 50 % more than a Swedish Crown. 18 USD/hour at McDonalds sounds like a dream come true. And wow, that extra payment seems really generous. :o
2019-06-12 15:15
It's mostly because of our strong worker unions, that it is so "generous". In the beginning, when Mcdonalds tried to open a lot of places in Denmark, they refused to pay more than $10/hour, so the unions stepped in and anyone ended up boycutting Mcdonalds, and therefore was forced to agree to higher salary.

Wow, yeah, sounds like they did a swell job at increasing the standards! We have worker unions here as well and my understanding is that they do a good job as well. But sometimes it feels a bit weird to make just as much as a post office worker working from 7-15. Since I worked at the post office full time for about a year I know what that job requires, and its not as tough as the one I have now. Nevertheless, I shouldnt complain x)
2019-06-12 15:22

It's pretty hard to bring food unless you bring like sandwiches or something, so normally I eat fast food or anything like that. These restaurants are always open even at 1 AM or so when I usually eat my "lunch". I try to stay healthy though, no sugary drinks and presumably no fries (whichare the most unhealthy parts of a McDonalds meal for example) so usually just hamburgers and water I brought myself.

Well its not ILLEGAL but I would probably lose my job as a consequence. Uploading information about objects I'm at is one thing. And also inside information about my company would probably be a bad thing to do. So basically trying to keep it as neutral as possible so that the thread is about the occupation itself and not the company or so.
