Chapter Summary

Many police officers lead a double life: on one hand, they struggle against the drug gangs when in use, and on the other, they act as the armed wing for organized crime during their "rest days ". Developed countries are not immune to the "blunders" of the police, even if it states "civilized" respectful of human rights and the principles of the rule of law. The legal standards have themselves given rise to an abundant case law: national case law, but also international and regional, particularly regional human rights. It is necessary therefore to first present the diversity of a multifaceted phenomenon before clearing the common principles that seem out of normative forces and judicial decisions. The role of the police is to maintain order and public order and this may involve the use of force, the police, or the use of binding power.

Keywords: police; human rights; normative forces; judicial decisions
