Law enforcement in South Korea

Hyundai Sonata police car in South Korea.

South Korea has a relatively unified and integrated approach to law enforcement. For example, the National Police Agency provides all policing services throughout the country. This differs from the situation in many countries such as France, where policing is split between the National Police and Gendarmerie, or such as the United States which have a layered system of national, state/regional and/or local law enforcement organizations.
