The European Gendarmerie Force is a significant factor in the development and implementation of the EU security policy. The Treaty that has established these forces is of special legal relevance. Global challenges have affected the EU making it become involved in their resolution on a wider scale. The importance of the European Gendarmerie Force stems from this since it has integrated the civilian and military capacities of the EU and this is a pre-requisite for a successful resolution of global problems in XXI century. The Member States may have different status within the European Gendarmerie Force, but for now, full membership is reserved only for gendarmerie from the EU countries. In case Serbia becomes an EU member, its gendarmerie could become a full member of the European Gendarmerie Force. It would be very useful, because the Gendarmerie of the Republic of Serbia could get involved in the contemporary trends of resolving both local and global issues. We should not ignore the possibility of exchanging experience and meeting police officers from abroad, what would contribute to the efforts undertaken by the Republic of Serbia in stabilizing the security situation in the region.
