Topic - Bolivian National Police

Law enforcement in Bolivia is based on the 31,000-strong Cuerpo de Policía Nacional (National Police Corps) responsible for internal security and maintaining law and order. Unlike most Latin American countries, the Bolivian police force always has been accountable to the national government rather than to state or local officials. The 1950 Organic Law of Police and Carabiniers officially separated the police from the military. Frequently, however, the national police call upon the military for assistance in quelling riots and civil protests. - Source: Wikipedia
