Changes in society that emerged after the signing of the Ohrid Framework Agreement in 2001 considerably changed the organizational culture of public administration. In the past decade, after serious changes in the police composition, the significance of police subculture is still questioned. Police are interested in the homogenization of the behaviour of its members in accordance with all the values prescribed by the Code of Police Ethics (2004). On the other hand, the public expects to have a professional police force who will really work as a service to citizens. Despite the reforms and the pressures of the international community which were going towards the demands of citizens and Lege Artis of the profession, the politicians, in their calculations, are still influential in police actions and decisions. The continued political influence led to conflicts of interests of the organization (profession) with the party and ethnic interests of the political entities. Such influence has moved away the Republic of Macedonia from the process of building a professional and adequately educated police organization.
