Law enforcement services in Latvia are the responsibility of the Ministry of the Interior, which is in charge of the State Police, the Security Police and the State Border Guard branches. The Municipal police is part of local government.

The Latvian State Police protects Latvia and its citizens from criminal threats posed to life, health, rights, freedom, property and interests. The Latvian State Police has five regional police districts.

Currently, the State Police is staffed by almost 7,000 certified officers and more than 600 civilians.

  • Operational Coordination and Informative Provision Unit.
