Law enforcement agencies work at the local, state, and federal levels to maintain order and protect citizens. Police personnel attend accident scenes and other emergencies, conduct search and rescue operations, and educate the public about safety and other matters. The job of a police officer requires a person to be physically and mentally fit, as well as of good character.

The city police force is just one example of law enforcement. Officers and detectives have jurisdiction within the city limits to enforce the law and investigate local crimes. Law enforcement agencies also include state police forces. This force has jurisdiction over the entire state and is usually responsible for law enforcement on state highways. State police departments may offer training to recruits for forces too small to perform this function themselves, as well as provide protective services to the state governor.

State police may operate a water unit, known as a Marine Patrol, Harbor Patrol or Water Police. These police officers are responsible for public safety on lakes and rivers. They provide safety information to boaters and investigate crimes that occur on or near the water. Search and rescue or search and recovery operations are part of the Marine Patrol’s duties, and some of their officers may have dive training to perform these duties.

Branches of the military have their own law enforcement personnel. The Military Police is a special police force that investigates crimes involving military men and women. In some countries, local police have jurisdiction over members of the military and civilians. An example of this type of law enforcement agency is the French gendarmerie.

Federal law enforcement agencies are involved in border security and homeland security functions. Customs officials are responsible for enforcing customs regulations and other federal laws. They have the power to turn back potential visitors attempting to enter the country illegally, seize contraband entering or leaving their country, and ensure that the right amount of duty is collected on imports.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is an example of a federal law enforcement agency responsible for investigating a number of crime types, including cybercrime, organized crime, terrorism, and white-collar crime. This agency is also responsible for investigating allegations of public corruption, grand theft and violent crime. The FBI also provides laboratory services to other law enforcement agencies nationwide.
