Summary/Abstract: The article aims to present considerations and attempts to answer the questions, what dimension – trust, loyalty, commitment and specific expectations or qualifications – influences the process of staffing authorities of the Police and what dependencies and relationships with other organizational processes constitute the basis of personal decisions in Ministry of internal affairs and administration. The work presents partial results of surveys of areas associated with politicisation of the Police, especially at the management level, their reception and perception in terms of institutional efficiency of formation. Research was carried out by a survey (quantitative using paper standarised questionnaire) in two research groups: students and police officers, led to interesting results. Their presentation should be a supplement to subsequent disputes about apoliticism and human resources management in the Police. Peculiarly for further development of research on apoliticism of the Police and causes profound changes in post-election times in higher management staff of the Police, is the lack of such studies of this undoubtedly credible problem.
