From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Law enforcement in Liechtenstein is handled solely by the small National Police of Liechtenstein (Landespolizei), consisting of 85 officers and 33 civilian staff[1] which police the 160km² doubly landlocked alpine country in Western-Central Europe. Bordered by Switzerland to its west and by Austria to its east, the Liechtenstein Police maintain a trilateral treaty which enables close cross-border cooperation between the police forces of the three countries.[2]

Liechtenstein has a significantly low crime rate, with the last murder taking place, according to a serving officer, “about ten years ago.”[3 ] Liechtenstein jails hold very few, if any, inmates, with sentences over two years being transferred to Austria.[3 ] Officers in the Liechtenstein police force remained unarmed until a recent shooting.[3 ]
