The Federal Office of Police or fedpol (German: Bundesamt für Polizei, French: Office fédéral de la police, Italian: Ufficio federale di polizia, Romansh: Uffizi federal da polizia) of Switzerland is subject to the Federal Department of Justice and Police. It is responsible for the coordination between cantonal police corps and between Swiss and foreign police forces. It also controls the Swiss internal intelligence agency, Dienst für Analyse und Prävention or DAP (Analysis and Prevention Service) and investigates organised crime, money laundering and terrorism.

The fedpol publishes yearly report on domestic security. Its investigative arm is the Federal Criminal Police, which operates a small special operations unit, whose existence was not made public until 2009.
