The Municipality has security agencies and institutions such as the Police, BNI, Immigration, CHRAJ, Circuit and Magistrate Courts to deal with any form of crime or dispute to ensure law and order.

The Municipality is fortunate to have access to the Police service, Immigration Service and BNI whose mandate are to enforce peace and order in a democratic dispensation. The Municipality is fortunate to have a District Circuit and Magistrate Court at Bibiani which helps to administer justice to the people to ensure peace, order and security. This favourable and encouraging security environment in the district promotes good governance and for that matter development.

The stations lack decent offices and residential accommodation for stationed officers. Additionally, inadequate staff is one major problem that has bedevilled the police administration over the years in the Municipality.
