This article presents analysis of police systems in different countries among others Poland, the USA, Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands and France. According to it the author concludes that the police systems in the selected countries show great similarity taking into consideration the rules of organisation and functioning. However, a significant difference is present in the French Police if we consider the level of centralization. It results from the presence of the organizational unit of a centralized nature in the structure of the ministry of internal affairs. In case of the Dutch Police there is a unique solution - there is not a central police body but at the same time there are institutions which standardize the functioning of all police service. The organization of police service corresponds to the administrative division of particular countries.There are elements of management of processes which result from the acceptance of principles of management through quality in the Police service of all countries, besides the French Police dominated by management through objectives. Setting high requirements towards police officers is noticeable in the case of each Police service studied here. At the same time there are incentive schemes based on the use of pay and non-pay benefits. The exception is the English Police which gave up the incentive scheme.
