Abstract

In the arrangement of the system the use of force and firearms is necessary to comply with the provisions of the Convention and the basic standards of firearms of the United Nations and the precedents of the European Court of Human Rights, or standard use of force, which is nothing more than absolutely necessary. Regulations on the performance of police duties, including regulations on the use of force at the law must be formulated with sufficient precision, ie they must be sufficiently clear. This requirement does not preclude the detailed regulations for police, such as rules and regulations based on law and comply with the law. All regulations, regardless of importance, must be available to citizens so that they can be aware of the possible consequences of applying these regulations. Regulations must be in step with changing circumstances, there must be a good balance between detail, flexibility, elasticity and gradual use of police regulations on the performance of police duties. A fundamental principle of the rule of law that the law applies to all citizens, including law enforcement. It is important to ensure that the police officers apply the same laws as other citizens, but exceptions can be justified for reasons of the proper performance of police work in a democratic society. In this regard, it is necessary to review the legality of the use of force as a special reason, the exclusion of illegal activity.

Regulations that resolves the issue of liability and determination of the legality of the use of force in certain countries in transition, are flawed, inadequate and incomplete, so it is possible to arbitrarily determine the legality of the use of force as an indicator of the formation of various committees to determine the feasibility and legality of the use of force. Laws on Police democratic countries regulate the use of force in carrying out police duties, the reasons for the use of force, principles and limitations of the use of force. Lawfulness is assessed under the provisions of necessary defense or extreme necessity. The starting point is that we should have police officers in Serbia specifically trained and possess special skills that they can use force to the extent justified, even if the police officer used more force than is justified under the Police Act or the Regulations on Technical characteristics and method of use of force, it may still be legal under the provisions relating to self-defense, provided she is not manifestly unreasonable. Police Act clearly states the means of coercion, police equipment, but the conditions and modalities for their implementation are not fully understood. Modalities for the use of force, as well as weapons and equipment that can be used on that occasion police officers have been further clarified by other regulations, such as for example Regulation on technical characteristics and method of use of force.
