Law enforcement is principally in the hands of the Royal Gibraltar Police Force and Gibraltar Customs. The Force is the oldest established British Force outside the United Kingdom, and it operates both in the city and in the bay.
Gibraltar Customs controls all entry points into Gibraltar, ie the land frontier, airport and sea points. In addition, it undertakes shore patrols, and is responsible for controlling imports and exports, and for collecting import duties. Like the police, customs also patrol the bay with their own marine section.
Both the Royal Gibraltar Police and Gibraltar Customs work closely with their counterpart organisations in other countries in all matters of crime prevention, and are particularly active in the international battle against drug trafficking.
