Active roles express the action, behaviour and emotion of the roles.

In Active Role Theory “Father, mother, police” are not used BUT the dynamic of the role is used, Communicator, Screamer, love giver et.

You could use police in quotes. E.g. (“Police”- Shout, referring to a father, or husband, boss etc. Although, “Dictatorial Shouter” would be better.

Therefore, the PoL does NOT use figures that represent a “police” but represents “the form” of expression of behaviour. E.g. A person with his arms raised!

In that case, that “shape” (hands raised) is universal but  “police” has different meaning in different places.
