EN Shaping the image of uniformed services is related to many conditions, including historical ones, stereotypes, or the opinion of circles that have often come into conflict with, for example, the Police. Thus, it is more difficult for uniformed services than for enterprises to influence their image in the eyes of society, the more so as the media often create specific messages through their reports. The image of each organization is a component of intellectual capital, which is a consolidated intangible resource. Managing this comprehensive intangible resource will result in, among other things, higher efficiency, increased innovation and creativity, greater involvement of staff, and the desire to self-improve, which will lead to shaping a better and better image. The study aims to present results of research on the image as an intangible resource as an intellectual capital element, and preliminary research on perceiving the image of the Police and the Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland. They were carried out on a selected sample of young people.
