Royal Malaysia Police
The Royal Malaysian Police (RMP) is a 102,000-strong police force with responsibilities ranging from traffic control to intelligence gathering. It is made up of eight specialized law enforcement departments:
- Criminal Investigation Department;
- Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department;
- Internal Security and Public Order Department;
- Special Branch;
- Commercial Crime Investigation Department;
- Counter-Terrorism Special Operations Task Force;
- Management Department;
- Logistics Department.
The Royal Malaysian Police Headquarters (known as “Bukit Aman” in Malay) is the national RMP administration centre. It is from here that the Inspector General of Police directs operations. The 14 regions – known as contingents – each have their own Police Headquarters, as do the 148 police districts across the country.
