The Sochi City Police Department (Officially: Department for Internal Affairs of Sochi; In Russian: Управление внутренних дел по городу Сочи or just Sochi Police, Полиция Сочи), established in 1881, shortly after the establishment of Police Department in the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The Sochi Department for Internal Affairs is the municipal police force in Sochi.

The first mention of Sochi police authority policing refers to the period of armed rebellion in 1905–1906.

In conditions of high social tension there is a danger of extremism and armed conflict. The people's courts and people's Militia – the first revolutionary government agencies, created a group of police officers in Sochi .

Among those arrested were some Bolsheviks, were part of the Red Guard. Detachment of Red Guards of the Sochi administration was surrounded by police and had demanded the release of all detained for a New Year's brawl. In view of the numerical superiority of the Reds, theSochi police refused to armed resistance.
