Federal Police

Local nameBundespolizeipräsidium
LocationTeltower Vorstadt, Potsdam, Germany

The Federal Police is a uniformed federal police force in Germany. It is subordinate to the Federal Ministry of the Interior. Ordinary police forces, meanwhile, are under the administration of the individual German states and are known as the Landespolizei.

The Bundespolizei was formed from the Bundesgrenzschutz, which had a more restricted role, the West German Railway Police, formerly an independent force, and the East German Transportpolizei in 1990.

Prior to 1994 BGS members also had military combatant status due to their historical foundation and border-guard role in West Germany. In July 2005 the law renaming the BGS as the BPOL was enacted.
