About Us

Police was formed approximately about 70 years ago, during the kingdom of A-Sultan Mohamed Shamsudhdheen III. It was established by a Law that was announced on 29th March 1933.

There were 120 officers in the police when it was first established. Their duty was to patrol the market area and the island. In other words, establishing peace amongst the citizens and protecting the people and their belongings. Just as today’s patrols, Police had their duty shifts during then too. They wore uniforms while on duty. The uniform consisted of Maldivian Traditional dress- Mundu & Libaas, Black Cap and Belts. They used batons while on duty and also had whistles with them. If Police needed help while on duty, the protection and help of military was available as the Law stated.
