Communal Police of Belgrade was founded in 2010. The specific tasks of communal police officers define their professional and work profile, health status, relevant personality traits, the appropriate level of general and special physical fitness, and morphological characteristics. The aim of this study was to define the current state of basic morphological characteristics of female uniformed structure of Communal Police of Belgrade. The sample consisted of 40 female communal police officers aged 29.7 ± 6.2 years. All measurements were made during 2011 at the Motor Research Laboratory (MRL), Faculty of Sport and Physical Education, University of Belgrade. Measurements were carried out by a standardized procedure using the newest generation analyser of body structure: InBody 720. The obtained values of all variables were processed using basic descriptive statistics. The results showed that the average body weight (BW) of the subjects was 63.61±9.81 kg, body height (BH) 166.9±5.7 cm, body mass index (BMI) 22.97±3.73 kg/m2 and the average structure of body composition as follows: 21.14±2.08 L of intracellular fluid (ICW), 13.01±1.30 L of extracellular fluid (ECW), 9.13±0.91 kg of proteins, 3.20±0.35 kg of minerals, 2.67±0.26 kg of bones mass, 17.10±6.43 kg of body fat mass (BFM), 26.24±5.99 % of percent body fat (PBF), area of internal organs affected by fatty deposits (visceral fat) was 57.07±25.67 cm2, fitness score index was 75.80±3.81 points, 30.27±3.09 kg of living cells mass in the body, while the level of the basal metabolism was 1372.0±100.0 kcal. The results lead us to conclude that the current morphological status of female communal police officers belongs to the category of the population with normal anthropomorphological status of citizens of the Republic of Serbia.
