Abstract. The article analyzes the application of the four communication models of J. Grunig and T. Hunt (press agentry/publicity; public information model; two-way asymmetrical and symmetrical models) in the practice of public law enforcement communications. The author concludes that the dialogue and partnership model of interrelations between law-enforcement bodies and the population corresponds to the modern realities to the greatest extent. This gives grounds for considering the public law enforcement communications management as a process of organizing a communication system and a communicative process between the structural divisions of the law enforcement agencies and the population, civil society structures and the media in order to ensure public safety. Thus, the main task of law enforcement agencies in the field of public law enforcement communication management is to build and maintain the configuration of a relational network that allows stakeholders to enter relationships significant for ensuring public security.

Keywords: public law enforcement communication, bilateral symmetric communication, law enforcement agencies, management of public law enforcement communication
