Law enforcement services in Hungary are provided by two principal agencies:

  • National Police, which includes the border police (Ministry of Interior);
  • National Tax and Customs Office (Ministry of National Economy).

Hungary’s national police headquarters are located in the 13th District of the capital, in a glass building called “the Police Palace”.  Hungary does not have a Gendarmerie nor are there municipal police forces.

  • Terrorism;
  • Financial crime;
  • Drug related crimes;
