The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan is the central executive agency responsible for public security, and the prevention and exposure of criminal offences in the Republic of Azerbaijan, within the framework of authorities provided by the national legislation.
Being the main police entity in the country, the Ministry of Internal Affairs also investigates cybercrime cases that are reported to the police units across the country. To support this capacity, there is a reform process since 2016, to establish a dedicated unit to fight cybercrime within the police, under the Ministry of Interior. Currently, there is a small team of officers (around 25) designated for the task, also providing support and advice to other units of the police that handle cybercrime and electronic evidence.
An internal digital forensic team is supporting the work of the Ministry on cybercrime and electronic evidence.
