Research on the Role the Catholic Church undertakes in the Police Forces

  • Csaba Szabó

Abstract

This research aims to analyse action mechanisms influencing the emotional and moral identity of policemen serving in the Hungarian police forces and develop the professional methodology for processing those based on religious and pastoral grounds. The research highlights risk factors in personal and work life arising from the legal relation of professional policemen and entailing special emotional and moral pressure on the individual. In the following phases of the research it will be demonstrated that the significance of religious life and, consequently, the role of the Catholic Church, as well as the necessity of pastoral care will play an essential role in the future organizational structure of the Hungarian police.
