The police, as a specific organization, which is related to the exercise of police powers and use of force, and have daily contact with the public and their expectations from the police, always attracts the public attention. The Macedonian Police, after the Second World War, has continuously been affected by certain socio-political, cultural and demographic changes. Building an optimal model of police organization was marked by the strong political influence and impact of the international community after the armed conflict in 2001. The efforts of the police elite to build the identity of the Macedonian police have faced many obstacles. At present, the Macedonian Police still face challenges in meeting the requirements of the community in regards to professionalism and the de-politicization of the organization. In this respect, the reform of the police is an ongoing process and activity, the focus being on implementing the recommendations on police reform and strengthening the relationships within the police community in South-Eastern Europe and beyond.
