Most police forces in Poland are people up to 40 years. The main part of police officers has a secondary education (77%), 20% of police officers has a higher education and only 3% of the personnel have vocational education. Over 10% of police officers are women. Police work in very difficult and dangerous, because every day the police officers are risking their lives to save the lives of civilians.
