Republic of Cyprus
Mission

The duties and responsibilities of the Police are set out in the amended Police Law (N.73(1)) of 2004 and include the maintenance of Law and Order, the prevention and detection of crime as well as arresting and bringing offenders to justice.



However, in the context of the world-wide socio-economic changes and developments that have been taking place, as well as the needs of contemporary Cypriot Society, Cyprus Police has began to gradually diversify its role and mission, changing from a force to an organisation which aims not only to fulfill its mission, as set out by law, but also to provide services and assistance to the public. A considerable part of police human resources and means are dedicated to the achievement of this aim.
