Law enforcement in Montenegro

Law enforcement in Montenegro

Law enforcement in Montenegro is primarily the responsibility of the Police Administration, a law enforcement agency under the authority of the Ministry of Interior and Public Administration. Headquartered in Podgorica, the Police Administration, with its 8,000 armed officers, provides security for a government that in recent years has been in fear of destabilisation.

It is subject to very high critic that the Law enforcement in Montenegro is far too dependent on the authorities, one of the conditions on its European integrations.


All directorates of the Police Administration report to the Ministry of Interior and Public Administration. The police force is controlled legally by the country's Law on Police, and the Assembly of the Republic of Montenegro and the Montenegrin citizens can use this law to exert control over the police force. The Montenegro Civil Police has 5209 employees, of which 2473 are uniformed officers, 94 of these female.
