The Canal Zone Police was a U.S. foreign police force consisting of more than 400 officers responsible for the security of Panama Canal Zone property and general policing functions. The force was divided into two divisions, Atlantic and Pacific, and operated approximately 25 stations. This made the canal area much safer. [ref. needed] The force was disbanded on March 31, 1982, when law enforcement agencies from the former Panama Canal Zone were transferred to the Republic of Panama under the Torrijos-Carter Treaties of 1977. Today, the Panamanian National Police, the oldest branch of Panama`s public forces, is responsible for enforcing the law on the vast canal complex. This section on law enforcement is a heel.

The original police uniforms of the canal zone were military with an election campaign hat. Later, the uniforms were more in line with those of the U.S. State Police. The headgear ranged from octagonal caps to Stetson cavalry hats. Between 1941 and 1957, three policemen from the Canal Zone were killed in various incidents. Each officer was on a motorcycle patrol and was pushed off the road by a speeding car. No suspects have ever been charged with these murders.
