Law enforcement services in Denmark are provided by the country’s single national police force, called “Politiet”. Led by a National Commissioner, the force is part of the Ministry of Justice and has a strength of 13,500 employees serving a population of 5.5 million.
“Rigspolitiet”, which is part of the national police force, has overall responsibility for the country’s 14 police districts, including the districts of the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
Each police district is led by a Commissioner who works closely with the National Commissioner in drawing up the general strategic and tactical framework for the entire police service, for which Rigspolitiet is responsible.
Although operationally and financially autonomous, police districts can ask Rigspolitiet for assistance in investigations and special duties.
In Denmark, public prosecution is a Ministry of Justice responsibility. The Ministry seconds a representative to local police stations, thus generating constructive and positive collaboration between police officers and their judicial partners.
The INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Denmark is part of the National Center of Investigation (NCI) which also houses the national Sirene-Schengen and Europol offices.
- Section for International Cooperation (SIC);
- Analysis and Monitoring;
- Communications Centre (INTERPOL, SIRENE, Europol);
- International Projects (including Nordic liaison officers stationed abroad);
- Serious Crime Squad.
The Communications Centre is made up of more than 35 staff members and is operational 24/7. It is the single point of contact for Politiet action requiring international outreach.
