Contemporary approaches - when treating socialization as a phenomenon - appear within the altered research paradigms and considerably altered context of the contemporary social and particularly political events. The socialization issue becomes a matter of interest when there is interest in science directed towards defining the consequences and their impact on the individual behavior regarding the functioning of the institutions and the system as a whole. The constant and systematic research of socialization started within the social, and particularly criminal and other sciences. Therefore, the definitions about socialization, especially the political one, are quite important in this work and have no tendencies of being comprehensive. They comprise all roles and emphasize the necessity of interdisciplinary approach. Socialization is a process of social learning in which individuals and the social groups gain relatively permanent orientations and forms of behavior regarding institutions, processes and values. This work analyzes the research results from the citizens’ attitudes regarding the work of the police, and in my personal opinion, the issues regarding the orientations, processes and values expressed through the process of socialization will be emphasized. In this context we will focus on the research results which refer to identification of the individuals with the police, their role, forms of loyalty, and the general perceptions of the police within the society. Key words: socialization, political socialization, identifications, values, processes, institutions.
