The EU accession process and the ultimate EU membership have always served as an appropriate anchor and incentive for Turkey to undertake the necessary reforms. Turkey has tried to incorporate into West by using European laws and institutions for 200 years; however, Turkey has always carried out them in her own understanding. To put it clearly, by the EU accession process, Turkey faces the fact that she has to play the game by obeying original of rules in order to become a member of the EU. Seeing that, this study aims to explain Turkey’s amendments made to play the game originally, especially in the field of Justice and Home affairs. In conclusion, the scope of this analysis is to explain the transformation process of the law enforcement forces who have always been one of the most problematic parts of the Turkey’s integration to West.
