The paper will discuss the knowledge management concept, tacit and explicit knowledge and police subculture. Knowledge management is an important concept of organizational culture that affects the adaptation of an organization to the social environment, and the police subculture can have a different impact on the application of knowledge management. The specificity of the police profession indicates that it is necessary to combine tacit and explicit knowledge in order to achieve efficiency in the organization. It was noticed that for valid application of tacit and explicit knowledge, it is necessary to have quality social relations that will suppress potential rusty characteristics of police subculture, as well as cooperation through the exchange of knowledge between police officers within different lines of work. The aim of this paper is to point out a correlation of the forms of knowledge and characteristics of police subculture, as well as the application of the knowledge management concept in the police force.
