Rožňava’s city police were established in 19 December 1990 upon Rožňava City Council Resolution No. 1/1990.
Competencies assigned the city police are laid down in Slovak National Council Act No. 564/1991 Coll. on General Policing as amended. The city police are a law enforcement unit actively responsible for ensuring public order is maintained in city limits, protecting the environment in the city and fulfilling other tasks defined in generally binding city ordinances, city council resolutions and mayoral decrees.
The city police investigate and resolve various misdemeanours in block proceedings that are defined by specific regulations as well as selected offences involving public safety and traffic regulations, in particular zones with restrictions on stopping, standing, turning, U-turns and areas in which vehicles are prohibited.
