ABSTRACT

Our society, as it comes into modern society, is rapidly changing by wave of urbanization and globalization. Concept of police has been also socially and historically changed accordingly by time and society while it continues to be changed. Therefore, police organizations need to be changed corresponding to social changes. Changes in police can be viewed by police policies and police organizations. Police policies are required to be changed into local autonomous police and police organizations need to correspond to democratic society and shouldn't damage democracy and political neutrality which is a basic concept of police law. Korean police had established police committee and public peace administrative committee in order to secure political neutrality. Therefore, the police committee, beyond its simple consultation and legislative functions, needs to suggest directions corresponding to basic concepts for police laws and requirements of people through improved systems for police committee which is custom tailored for our country while it achieves its original purposes and basic concept for current police law. Those are purposes of this paper. As the police committee is regarded as a council system and consultation․legislative organization according to current police law. the committee's members have their responsibilities for decisions from the police committee. This consultation․legislative organization has authorities only for consulting and making decisions upon articles imposed by police chief and laws while it has no right for presenting its jobs outward. Although the committee might be a nominal council consultation․legislative organization, it has a simple advisory organization since it has no articles for binding power against consultation․legislative organization. Since the police committee has no foundational articles which gives legal binding power for the consulted and voted articles which have been resolved by the committee and administrative security ministry, if necessary, has a right for requesting reconsideration, its simple consultation and legislative right might degenerated into a superficial legislative power. Those are problems. The police committee needs to manage police agency with its administrative position beyond current nominal consultation and legislative organization in order to achieve its administrative tasks effectively and to secure political neutrality. The police committee, corresponding to purposes for its establishment, needs to be systematically institutionalized so that it can achieve responsible administration and service for people with its role for consultative administrative government office and legal roles. And it's impossible for the committee to secure political neutrality and democratic aspects which are purposes for its establishment, and to carry out its diversionary against police administrative jobs if the committee belongs to current administrative security division. The police committee, beyond its simple consultation and legislative functions, needs to meet basic concepts of police laws and requirements of people by improving its custom-tailored system for our country while it has rights to check and manage police offices in order to achieve its original purposes and basic concepts of current police laws by legal and systems which give actual management and supervisory right against police administrative organizations.
