Abstract:Purpose: The main subject of this paper is the analysis of attitudes of police officers (detectives) in Belgrade Criminal Investigation Department (CID) about the core principles of democratic policing – protecting the citizens, commitment to the law, legal constraints of police activities and their impact on the effectiveness of policing, control of police and their legal liability. We also analyzed their views on legal solutions regulating the application of those police powers which are of greatest importance for the protection of human rights and freedoms of citizens. Design/Methods/Approach: The work is based on empirical research conducted in the period from September to October 2009 which included 250 (a 25 % sample) police officers in the Belgrade Police Depatment. The questionnaire comprised 49 question, the first six of which pertaining to demographic data. Most questions were of the closed form. Findings: The results of the research show that Belgrade police highly value objectives that are in the function of protecting interests of citizens, cooperation with citizens and absence of all forms of discrimination. They have shown animosity towards the law, as they perceive the law as a factor that limits thier efficiency. Efficiency of the police work is higly valued even at the cost of potentially violating human rights during the investigation. They consider the control of police work neccessary, preceiving the forms of internal control more useful than external control, especially those exerted by courts. Research limitations: This is an exploratory research, its results show tendencies and broad generalizations are not possible. Practical implications: Research results can be useful for police managers and for trainers in adjusting performance and attitudes of police officers in Belgrade PD. Originality/Value: The paper presents the findings of research upon which conclusions have been drawn regarding the perception of subjects regarding the most important issues arising from the democratic reform of police in Serbia.

Title:Stališča beograjskih kriminalistov o temeljnih načelih demokratičnega policijskega dela v Srbiji
Abstract:Namen prispevka: Poglavitna tema tega prispevka je analiza odnosov policistov (kriminalistov) v beograjskem kriminalističnem oddelku glede temeljnih načel demokratičnega policijskega dela – varovanja državljanov, spoštovanja zakona, pravnih omejitev policijske dejavnosti in njihovega vpliva na učinkovitost policijskega dela, nadzora nad policijo in njene pravne odgovornosti. Analizirali smo poglede policistov na zakonske rešitve, ki urejajo uporabo tistih policijskih pooblastil, ki so pri varovanju človekovih pravic in svoboščin državljanov najpomembnejši. Metode: Študija temelji na empirični raziskavi, opravljeni v obdobju od septembra do oktobra 2009 in vključuje 250 policistov iz beograjske policije, kar predstavlja 25-odstotni delež. Vprašalnik je vseboval 49 vprašanj, od katerih je bilo prvih šest povezanih z demografskimi podatki. Večina vprašanj je bilo zaprtega tipa. Ugotovitve: Rezultati raziskave kažejo, da beograjska policija visoko vrednoti cilje, ki so povezani z zaščito interesov državljanov, s sodelovanjem z državljani in z odsotnostjo vseh oblik diskriminacije. Policisti so izrazili zadržanost do zakona, saj ga razumejo kot dejavnik, ki omejuje njihovo učinkovitost. Učinkovitost policijskega dela je visoko cenjena, tudi za ceno potencialnega kršenja človekovih pravic med preiskavo. Menijo, da je nadzor nad delom policije potreben, pri čemer se jim zdijo oblike notranjega nadzora bolj uporabne od zunanjega nadzora, zlasti tistega, ki ga izvajajo sodišča. Omejitve raziskave: V tem prispevku gre za predhodno raziskavo, katere rezultati kažejo zgolj določene tendence, medtem ko širše posploševanje ugotovitev ni mogoče. Praktična uporabnost: Rezultati raziskave so lahko koristni za policijske vodje in učitelje pri prilagajanju izvrševanja nalog in ravnanja policistov v beograjski policiji. Izvirnost/pomembnost prispevka: Prispevek predstavlja ugotovitve raziskave, na osnovi katerih so bili izpeljani sklepi o zaznavah subjektov glede najbolj pomembnih vprašanj, ki izhajajo iz demokratične reforme policije v Srbiji.
