Summary/Abstract: In the late 20th/early 21st century, new dimensions in understanding and implementing security in a society have appeared. With the disappearance of bipolarism in international relations and with the emergence of multilateralism and multipolarism, based on the integration principles, new, modern challenges and threats to security have arisen, and that demanded redefining and creation of a new form of understanding of not only security, but also of certain social, political and economic factors, for the purpose of finding adequate models and strategies of comprehension of international relations. Modern understanding of security does not only include the phenomenon of military power, but it has a far wider scientific and social meaning. Security and defense education in the early 21st century includes a new concept of activities and implementation of practical and theoretical securitydefense experiences, that is, reforms of the education system for the purpose of finding an efficient method of opposing the new challenges to the national (collective) security of states. The new concept and methods of education are based on the international experience of other countries and is involved in the training system of police forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina. However, internal ethnic and political paradigms have prevented the existence of a unified police structure in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which has had an impact on the organization and functioning of the police in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Key words: safety, national safety, police
