In Switzerland, security is primarily the responsibility of the cantons. In our globalised world, however, crime does not stop at borders. Indeed, crime today is becoming ever more complex, often affecting several cantons simultaneously and frequently having an international dimension.
Against this backdrop, fedpol, as Switzerland’s national police agency, plays a central role. It coordinates, analyses and investigates complex cases involving serious crime. And it provides vital infrastructures. Hence, fedpol is at the heart of policing in Switzerland and is the nexus to the country’s international partners.
