Law enforcement in Nicaragua

Law enforcement in Nicaragua falls under the jurisdiction of La Policia Nacional of Nicaragua. They are in charge of regular police functions and sometimes work in conjunction with the Nicaraguan military, making it an indirect and rather subtle version of a gendarmerie.

The Nicaraguan National Police work separately and have a different established set of norms than the nation's military.
