 Polish Police - uniformed and armed
force, which main goal is to serve and
 proctect the people, and to maintain
       public order and security.
               NATIONAL POLICE
                             The basic police activities:
- the protection of people`s health and life, the protection of property,
the protection of public safety and order,
-creating and organizing "community policing" and crime prevention activities,
- detecting crimes and misdemeanors, arresting people who commited crimes,
-the control of regulations, regarding public life and public spaces,
- the cooperation with police forces from other countries and international
