The State Security Service of the Republic of Kazakhstan (Kazakh: Қазақстан Республикасы Мемлекеттік күзет қызметі, Qazaqstan Respýblıkasy Memlekettik kúzet qyzmeti; Russian: Служба государственной охраны Республики Казахстан) is a government security agency of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It was established in 2014 on the basis of the Presidential Security Service and the Repuican Guard. Its current head is Anuar Sadykulov.
The Presidential Security Service and the Repuican Guard of Kazakhstan were created in 1992 following Kazakhstan’s independence from the USSR. The Republican Guard was created several months later. Both agencies played a very important role in ensuring state security. The State Security Service was established by the Decree of Kazakhstan's President on April 21, 2014 as a result of a merger of the Presidential Security Service and the Republican Guard.
State Security Service Day was officially declared in May 2014 as a professional holiday in order to emphasize the importance of the service.
Since its inception, the service has ensured the security of important national and international events, such as the inauguration ceremony of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Capital City Day, summits in Kazakhstan, and many others. It also ensures the security of government officials and V.I.P guests, including the President of Kazakhstan and hismembers of his family. The service has a regiment which serves as a ceremonial unit and maintains a creative musical unit called the Presidential Band.
