Sammanfattning: For many years, camera surveillance has been used for crime prevention purposes in public places, but also in vulnerable areas. However, the use of camera surveillance has in many cases been complicated in connection with, among other things; privacy, exercise of power and segregation. This is a study on camera surveillance in vulnerable areas with a demarcation point to the city of Uppsala and Västerås. The purpose of this study is to see how the inhabitants of the vulnerable areas, actually experience camera surveillance in vulnerable areas. The study also aims to see what intentions are behind camera surveillance in the vulnerable areas of Uppsala and Västerås. The choice of method is based on a qualitative study in the form of semi-structured interviews with a total of ten respondents, eight of whom are residents from vulnerable areas in Uppsala and Västerås and two of the respondents are municipal employees from Uppsala and Västerås municipality. The two respondents with municipal employment have different years of experience in surveillance, security and crime prevention. The data analysis has been in the form of both an inductive and deductive analysis where different themes have been used to clarify the results. The selection of the different themes has been based on both the theoretical framework and the collected data. It turned out that for the research question; “How is camera surveillance in vulnerable areas perceived by residents from vulnerable areas in Uppsala and Västerås?” there were varied responses in certain occasions, for different categories. Some of the respondents saw the good of camera surveillance, while others saw it as an offensive and sometimes unnecessary measure. For the supplementary side-to-side question; “What are the intentions behind camera surveillance in vulnerable areas in Uppsala and Västerås?" the two municipal respondents had similar answers; camera surveillance aimed to reduce crime, especially drug sales, which both respondents mentioned.
