The paper does not impose excessive academic or scientific ambitions, but it seeks to bring the domestic audience closer to the current situation and processes, regarding the local public order affairs management, concerning Switzerland, the country that is generally perceived as a certain „oasis of peace“ in a turbulent Europe. Regarding the concentrated data on cantonal, regional and municipal components in Switzerland the author did not find a similar current study in the domestic environment. Plasticity of the paper is supported by additional annexes (illustrations, tables, infographics).

Keywords: Switzerland, local public order affairs, reforms, decentralization, trends.
