The district is led by Chief of Police Ellen Katrine Hætta.[1] Specifically the police district covers the municipalities of Vardø, Vadsø, Karasjok, Lebesby, Gamvik, Berlevåg, Tana, Nesseby, Båtsfjord, Sør-Varanger.[2] As of 2011 the district had 165 employees.[3] It has a special responsibility for the Norway–Russia border control at Storskog and the Reindeer Police.[4] The police district was created in 2003 as a merger between the former Sør-Varanger Police District, Vadsø Police District and Vardø Police District.[5]
