Ministry of Internal Affairs formulates and implements policies relating to defence, security, law and order.

The mission of the Ministry is to provide the highest possible level of security in the state, which is attained through preventive rather than repressive action of the law enforcement agencies. Aiming to implement both tasks, the Ministry of the Interior is responsible for public security and police, internal administrative affairs and migrations, pursuant to the State laws.

The Ministry of the Interior, together with the Police and the Internal Affairs Inspectorate as autonomous bodies within its framework, performs tasks defined by law in the following fields of activity:
