Abstract [en]

This article centres on Swedish police students’ perceptions of the informal practice of “Core Values Timeout” (Sw. värdegrunds-timeout) in the police force. The analysis is based on empirical data from fieldwork conducted at the Swedish National Police Academy. The results show that the timeout works to oppose the official Police Core Values policy, but also an implicit core value based on non-discriminatory speech and behaviour. The timeout works as a counter-hegemonic discursive tool for maintaining a humorous jargon, and functions as a socio-pragmatic device for parallel practices of inclusion and exclusion. The timeout can be seen as a response to the Police Core Values, i.e. the core values generate the counter-productive effect of making visible the non-acceptable behaviour and politically incorrect values practised in the organisation.
