Police procedure for handling orders and requests issued by the competent authorities
aMUP Republike Srbije, Beograd
bUniversity of Criminal Investigation and Police Studies, Belgrade
In addition to the police duties set forth in Article 30(3) of the Law on Police (hereinafter referred to as Law), the police perform other duties and tasks established by law. A number of these duties pertain to the provision of assistance to other government bodies, primarily to the courts and prosecutors’ offices in carrying out tasks within their scope of work, which consists of handling their orders and requests. To establish the amount of time police officers in the security sector spend on handling orders and requests, this paper presents sections of four surveys dealing with the engagement of police officers in performing these duties. The survey findings presented indicate that the police of the Republic of Serbia spend a considerable amount of working time on handling orders and requests and performing other tasks that are not directly related to the prevention and repression of crime. The fact that police officers are overwhelmed with an increasing number of orders and requests is, in addition to the survey findings presented, confirmed by the statistics of the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Serbia in the period 2010-2013, which is also presented in this paper. According to the statistical data, judicial authorities annually send over 101.000 requests for serving summons, about 435.000 orders for bringing in persons, and more than 100.000 requests for the verification of residence addresses, of which 75% pertains to field verification of residence addresses. The problem of spending most of the working time on handling orders and requests has been present for more than ten years in policing in the security sector. In resolving this problem, we propose to examine experience from other countries whose law enforcement agencies have entrusted some of their work to other government bodies or the private security sector.
