The Police of Serbia is part of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Serbia, which performs the tasks of the state administration of the Republic of Serbia. The Serbian Police or police officers are considered to be uniformed and non-uniformed police officers, members of administrations and units, such as: Police Directorate, Criminal Police Directorate, Traffic Police Directorate, Border Police Directorate, Security Directorate, Protection Unit, Operations Center, Special Antiterrorist unit, Helicopter Unit and Gendarmerie.
