General Department of Internal Security

The General Department of Internal Security (DGSI) coordinates and implements Luxembourg's general policies in the area of internal security, as well as the preparation and the follow-up of national and international meetings in this domain.

The aim of this strategy is to ensure security for the entire population and to respond to the challenges of our time, under a strong rule of law. In order to accomplish its mission, the DGSI has set itself three priorities: massive recruitment within the police force, investment, reform and modernisation projects, as well as the implementation of the principle of shared responsibility.

The Minister for Home Affairs is responsible for the Grand Ducal Police and the Inspection générale de la Police (IGP - General Police Inspectorate). Its competences are fixed by the Government regulation.

As crime knows no borders, a number of treaties, conventions or agreements promote collaboration between law enforcement entities from different countries, as well as assistance and information sharing as part of an effective police cooperation. The DGSI also has the task of negotiating and enabling the various forms of cooperation mentioned above.
