Georgian police patrol car in downtown Tbilisi

Law enforcement in Georgia is conducted by the Patrol Police Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia. In the last few years, it has undergone a radical transformation in the last few years. In 2005 President Mikhail Saakashvili fired "the entire traffic police force" of the Georgian National Police due to corruption, [1] numbering around 30,000 police officers.[2] A new force was built around new recruits.[1] The United States State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law-Enforcement Affairs has provided assistance to the training efforts.[3]

Patruli was first introduced in the summer of 2005 replacing the traffic police, which were accused of corruption.[4]

The police introduced an 022 emergency dispatch service in 2004.[5]
