The rulers of the State of Qatar gave high priority for the mission of achieving public security and peace since the modern State of Qatar was established. The formation of police agency guaranteed maintenance of discipline and security, protection of lives and prestige of people and public and private properties as well.

The first police agency formed in the State of Qatar was "Discipline Police" in 10/9/1949. This agency began its duties in 1949 at " Doha Police Section" which was located in the centre of "Souq Waqif ". The functions of this section comprised of providing security and protection for citizens, maintaining discipline by moving patrols, carrying out the mission of permanent guards at vital areas in the capital and organizing traffic movement. It also carried out all other police related duties like follow up of criminals, conducting investigations on criminal and traffic cases and referring the accused to the courts in addition to deporting the suspects if they deserve it.
