1.1. About Us...
Internal Affairs Sector, existed earlier as the Inspector General’s Service (IGS) of the Department of Public Safety (DPS) within the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Serbia. Inspector General’s Service was formally founded on 12 March 2001, when Police Code of Procedure for the Inspector General’s Service of the DPS was adopted. However, the actual process of setting up the Service did not begin until June 2003, with the naming of the first Inspector General in Ministry. The founding of the Inspector General’s Service of DPS was one of the priority tasks within Reform Programme of the Ministry of Interior, where the function of control and surveillance of the police was defined as one of the key areas of this Ministry.
Internal Affairs Sector is an independent organizational unit of the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Serbia, which according to provisions of the Police Law (November 2005), monitors the legality of work performed by MoI law enforcement officers, especially when they conduct police tasks and use police authority in order to safeguard and protect human rights.
