During the civil wars in former Yugoslavia very serious ethnic tensions arose in Serbia. In these circumstances a number of non-Serb police officers, and managers, were excluded from the police, because of their national origin. After democratic changes in October 2000, the reform of the police was launched. The police are still not representative of the population of Serbia in terms of ethnic structure, although it was one of the reform goals. The most important findings of the research conducted in 2006 regarding relations of the police and certain ethnic minorities are described in the paper.
