Considering that they pummeled and kicked to death an 18-years old boy and that after 2 years that poor kid doesn't have received any justice, no I don't the Italian "forces of order".
Corrupted,inefficient, arrogant,mischievous and always ready to club protesters.
Without forgetting all ties with Mafia and dubious politicians or "The gang of the White Fiat Uno" (Banda della Uno bianca).
Never forget, never forgive.

I don't trust my police although I do think they take their job more seriously than other else developed countries where they take advantage of their position.

I mostly trust them. Especially in administrative, guaranteeing safety and traffic duties, and solving serious crimes. But in demonstrations and other crowd control events they have frequently used excessive force and detained people without reason. And filing a complaint towards the police leads to nothing.

No-our Governments have been militarizing the local police forces under the guise of the war on "drugs" and "terrorism". Most Cops are good, but that doesn't mean that they will stand up to the bad ones or be able to influence the unjust nature of the judicial system.

CIA, FBI and Homeland Security I trust even less. Given the tainted history of the FBI/CIA they barely deserve respect.

Militarisation of the police in the USA portends excessive civil unrest in the years to come, needless also to say excessive measures to combat civil unrest. Even as an outsider, I get a very uneasy feeling about the ongoing developments in the states.

I'd say that I "mostly" trust the police to do their jobs and protect people here in the United States.

However, U.S. police often do things like picking and choosing which drivers to stop and fine just because they feel like it.

That stuff is B.S. They should just do their jobs and go after the people who are actually creating problems.

traffic duties have a broad enough scope , i know the police dont make the rules but in my own country , the speed laws are there mainly as a revenue raising mechanism , they are redicolously inconsistent , its gotten much worse since the rescession , makes sense i guess , the goverment needs the money

Here too, but the police still have some liberties to use common sense. I've always been able to talk myself off the hook.
