Established as a police force in June 1991, the Czech Republic police operate under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of the Interior which is responsible for public administration, internal security, crime investigation, border protection and eGovernment.

Current police staffing levels are estimated at 40,500 police officers, supported by approximately 8,900 civilian staff.

Headed by a Police President, the Czech National Police is organized around the country's 14 regions and 81 districts.  Its priorities include tackling high-impact economic crime (e.g. fraud, tax evasion, money laundering), corruption, illegal migration, terrorism, violent crime, drugs and psychotropic substances, juvenile delinquency, intellectual property crimes, thefts and murder.

The Police Academy of the Czech Republic is a state-supported university established in October 1992 in Prague to enable students to obtain the required level of education (i.e. Bachelor's, Master's or Doctor's degree in the field of criminal law, criminalistics and police management). Curricular activities are focused on the law and other related subjects, but forensic science, psychology, ethics and advanced methods to combat organized crime are also included.
