Fundamental rights and freedoms of national minorities and ethnic groups still have their place in society. This also relates to the status of the Roma minority. One of the issues debated in Slovakia is the criminality of members of that minority. This article deals with the broader context of the debate and discusses the specifics of the Roma minority and the causes of unwanted phenomena, such as unemployment, social status, low educational level, etc. It is the goal of each society to eliminate crime by action in a number of fields. In this article we mainly point at several measures of prevention, including preventive police activities, a project of Roma specialists in Slovakia and the project of Roma civil patrols.
