The use of physical force by the police is a very important issue from a legal, tactical and security point of view. These aspects are crucial for the conduct of the police, especially since in today's conditions there is more and more talk about the protection of the basic human rights and the affirmation of their further development. Due to the sensitivity of the issue, it is very important that the police act in the interest of the citizens and do not allow their professionalism and expertise to be questioned at any time. For this reason, their work is aimed at finding the most appropriate ways for the police to act in conditions when there is legal basis for the use of physical force. In view of this commitment, we will analyze several problematic situations in which various self-defense techniques, including physical force, are applied in order to overcome passive and active resistance and prevent a specific physical attack. Through the analysis and elaboration of these specific situations in accordance with the prescribed security standards, it is possible to find solutions for the use of a minimum and reasonable amount of force with clear distinctions of legal action by the police. Keywords: police, physical force, defense techniques, tactical procedure, passive resistance
