Law Enforcement 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.

Famous quotes containing the words south and/or law:

    In the far South the sun of autumn is passing
    Like Walt Whitman walking along a ruddy shore.
    He is singing and chanting the things that are part of him,
    The worlds that were and will be, death and day.
    Nothing is final, he chants. No man shall see the end.
    His beard is of fire and his staff is a leaping flame.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The most absurd apology for authority and law is that they serve to diminish crime. Aside from the fact that the State is itself the greatest criminal, breaking every written and natural law, stealing in the form of taxes, killing in the form of war and capital punishment, it has come to an absolute standstill in coping with crime. It has failed utterly to destroy or even minimize the horrible scourge of its own creation.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
