Abstract [en]

During the global crisis, in Lithuania the centralization of the police force accelerated as locally accountable and more community-oriented municipal police units came under the direct control and supervision of the national police headquarters. Centralization of command and control went hand in hand with policies strengthening the military ethos of police, manifested in military-style deployments resulting in the supression of popular 'voice' in mass demonstrations and increasing propensities to 'exit' among the discontented population.
