ICT can be efficiently used for the fastest acquisition of up-to-date data from all over the world, which is a basic prerequisite for everybody´s professional growth.On the basis of the comparison between the results of a UN survey (from the years 1994 – 1998) and the ones of a survey carried out by the Ministry of Information of the Czech Republic (2005), surveying the information and computer literacy ( terminology disunity) of the world population and the population of the Czech Republic, a questionnaire has been drafted and a survey of the level of PA CR students´information literacy has been carried out. The survey results show that there is obvious need to include a proper form of information education in the study programmes for future police managers.
