Ex-République yougoslave de Macédoine


Law enforcement in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is the responsibility of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Headquartered in Skopje and headed by a Government-appointed Director for a four-year mandate, the Ministry’s Bureau for Public Security runs the national police force. It is responsible for:

  • Protecting the freedom and rights of its citizens;
  • Ensuring law and order;
  • Preventing, detecting and investigating crime;
  • Regulating and controlling traffic;
  • Controlling migration and residence of foreigners;
  • Providing state border security and crossing control;


The National Central Bureau (NCB) for the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is made up of more than 10 staff and structured around the following crime areas:

  • Public safety and terrorism;
  • Organized crime;
  • Drugs and weapons;
  • Financial and high-tech crime,
  • Trafficking in human beings;
  • Stolen motor vehicles;
  • Fugitives.

To strengthen national security, INTERPOL Skopje has arranged for the Organized Crime Department (OCD) to have direct access to INTERPOL's range of criminal databases (the OCD comprises several units, including financial crime, violent crime, trafficking in human beings, drugs and weapons, forensics).  Access has also been granted to regional sections that deal with migration issues, and to national border crossing points.   There are plans to continue expanding access to INTERPOL databases to law enforcement units across the country.
