An issue discussed at international as well as national level on how the police officer, as a representative of the executive power of the state, performs his duty under the conditions of respect for human rights. The dispute in the matter is permanent, even if there are major changes in the current police behaviour. At the same time it is necessary to identify the limits to which the policeman should be careful so as to carry out his activity as a defender of the security of the person and the property. At the level of the Romanian Police, through the strategies and plans made, as well as by the enforcement of the Code of Conduct, it is found that the current policeman has a normal behavior towards the citizen, so citizens‟ trust in the Police is constantly increasing.
