Defense of the Marshall Islands is the responsibility of the United States, but local police matters are handled by the Marshall Islands Police, the national police force, as well as several atoll or municipality-based departments. There are two police forces which function under the name Kwajalein Police, a municipal department known otherwise as Kalgov Police, in addition to law enforcement on the U.S. military base on Kwajalein Atoll separate from the Government of the Marshall Islands, and which are contracted out to private security firms from the United States. Kwajalein Atoll is serviced by Alutiiq Security & Technology of Huntsville, Alabama.

The Marshall Islands has provided police officers to the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands since May 2006.

Marshall Islands police officer Clemson Jormelu is contingent commander of the Marshall Islands Police serving as part of RAMSI's Participating Police Force (PPF).
