Law enforcement in Togo
Responsibility for law enforcement in the Republic of Togo is primarily shared by the Police nationale, the civilian national police, and the paramilitary Gendarmerie nationale togolaise.
The Direction de la Police Nationale is commanded by a Director-general, who answers to the Minister of Security and Civil Defence. The force numbers about 4000 male and female members, serving throughout the country.
Its main responsibilities are law enforcement, protection of people and property, prevention of delinquency and maintenance of public order.
