In Macedonia, the processes that are reported as the cause of the transition and implementation of the Euro and Euro-Atlantic aspirations imposed the need for harmonization of legal standards and practices of the institutions with EU norms in the relevant areas. With the implementation of security sector reform, police had undergone several changes regarding the overall police functioning.

Moreover, the objective of this paper is to explain the progress of the introduction of information and communication technology for the period 1990-2011, through two forms of information collected: a) by means of interviews with three experienced experts from the Ministry of Interior, b) by analysing information and documents related to information and communication segment of the police reforms in Macedonia.
