Police Force of Malta, Mounted Division
4 members of the mounted division of the Police Force of Malta waiting outside the Presidential Palace to escort the Maltese President and the Nigerian President during a State Visit.
Despite its small size, the Maltese Police Force is organised into a number of departments, with human resources matters being held by the Strategy and Planning Office, and fiscal issues being dealt with by the Finance Office. An office for the Divisional Police Force Units administers Malta's 12 police districts, with three sub-departments of the Crime Investigation Department assisting with serious crimes, drug-related crimes and financial crimes. These mainstream departments are also supported by a Forensic Science Laboratory, Vice Squad, and Economic Crimes Unit, Legal Office and a Protective Services for VIP escorting and security as functions and protests.
