About Carabineros de Chile
The Carabiniers of Chile, are the uniformed Chilean national police force and gendarmerie.
Created on April 27, 1927 their mission is to maintain order and create public respect for the laws of the country. They report to the Ministerio de Defensa Nacional (Ministry of National Defense) through the Undersecretary of Carabiniers, but since 2011 the Ministry of the Interior and Public Security has full control over them, thus fully separating it from the three other branches by department but still considered a part of the armed forces. Chile also has an investigative police force, the Investigations Police of Chile, also under the Interior and Public Security Ministry.
