Founded in 1949, the Sint Maarten Police Force - called the “Korps Politie Sint Maarten” in Dutch - is part of the Ministry of Justice.
The force is headed by a Chief Commissioner who is assisted by two Commissioners – one in the Uniformed Division and the other in the Judicial Division.
With a strength of 180 officers for a population of nearly 70,000, the Sint Maarten police force is scheduled to increase to 370 officers in the next three years.
The NATIONAL Central Bureau (NCB) for Sint Maarten is located in the capital Philipsburg. Its activities focus principally on tackling trafficking and smuggling in human beings and working with the INTERPOL member countries in investigating cross-border crime.
