The provision of internal security is a police task. The police ensure internal security by applying internal security procedures so as to prevent, detect, evaluate and analyse potential risks threatening the internal security of the police, and check, evaluate and implement measures aimed at reducing the risks of degrading the integrity of police employees and police units. The police ensure the organisational and personal integrity of the employees. The police have their own code of ethical conduct. Internal security in the police is a situation enabling lawful, professional and smooth performance of police tasks and ensuring the safety of police employees and safe use of technical means and equipment, facilities, premises and environs. (Article 31 of the Organisation and Work of the Police Act)

The types and methods of implementing the procedures and measures are laid down in the Rules on Internal Security within the police.
