Law enforcement in Pakistan (Urdu: قانون نافذ کرنے والے) is carried out by several federal and provincial police agencies.[1] The four provinces and the Islamabad Capital Territory each have a civilian police force with jurisdiction extending only to the relevant province or territory. At the federal level, there are a number of civilian agencies with nationwide jurisdictions including the Federal Investigation Agency and the National Highways and Motorway Police, as well as several paramilitary forces including the Pakistan Rangers and the Frontier Corps, Gilgit Baltistan Scouts and Pakistan Coast Guard. Province of KPK and Sindh also maintain Tactical Police Forces known as Frontier Constabulary and Sindh Constabulary. The most senior officers of all the civilian police forces also form part of the Police Service of Pakistan, which is a component of the civil service of Pakistan.
