Law enforcement in Tajikistan

Law enforcement in Tajikistan is primarily the responsibility of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which controls the police force, which is referred to as the militia occasionally. It is split up into multiple departments, each led by an officer, including the Tajik Internal Troops, which acts as the national guard. The Minister of Internal Affairs oversees it. There is a Presidential National Guard that takes orders directly from the President of Tajikistan.[1] The Drug Control Agency is responsible for combating drug trafficking, which has been a major problem due to high heroin production in Afghanistan, to the south.
