The article deals with one of the most important problems of police science – how to increase interaction between the police and the community? For the research 1571 officials and 1306 civilians have been interviewed in 1996–1999. The survey results show that in recent years support for law enforcement has declined and is still in a downward spiral. For the necessary changes to occur police agencies must demonstrate innovation, courage and willingnes to work outside of an existing structure or bring about collaborative and positive results. Police departments must begin to form true partnership with an informed and involved public. Law Enforcement agencies must also be proactive in their efforts to regain and increase public confidence. While police continue to grapple with rising disrespect and disobedince, the challenge of creating real partnerships with communities could produce positive outcomes. In the article suggestions how to improve interaction between the police and the community and use the police officer knowledge and skills in a more effective way are given.
