Today, for all democratic countries, the idea for the police to control itself, without the possibility of external control, is absolutely unacceptable. The Republic of North Macedonia is one of the few countries in Europe that still has not created independent external mechanisms for which it was criticized several times by the European Court of Human Rights, as well as by other nongovernmental organizations for the protection of human rights. In the past, the absence of external control, most certainly allows for the police to act arbitrary in specific cases, which can seriously harm the human rights and bring into question the legal safety of the citizens. With the latest changes of the law of 2018, it was decided to create new mechanisms of external control in the framework of the Ombudsman. In this paper, we will elaborate in detail the organization and the function of existing mechanisms for police control in the Republic of North Macedonia and also the new mechanisms of external control.
