The Nigeria Police Force is the principal law enforcement agency in Nigeria. Its staff are deployed across the 36 states of the country and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The command and control of the Nigeria Police Force are under the Inspector General of Police.

Each of these departments is headed by a Deputy Inspector General of Police.

The Force is further divided into 12 operational Zonal Commands (usually comprising between two and four State Commands) and 37 State Commands including the FCT (usually comprising Area Commands which further comprise Divisions). While the zone is headed by an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, the State Command is headed by a Commissioner of Police, the Area Command by an Assistant Commissioner of Police and the Division by any officer in the Superintendent Cadre.
