Latvia: Valsts robežsardze

The State Border Guard was founded on 15 November 1919, when the leaders of the Republic of Latvia assigned the protection of the State border to the Border Guard division of the Latvian Army. The State Border Guard was reborn on 13 December 1991, when the Minister of Defence of the Republic of Latvia signed an order to establish an individual border control point for the city of Riga. The State Border Guard was under the supervision of the Minister of Defense until 1997 when it was given over to the Minister of the Interior. At present the State Border Guard includes a Headquarters located in the capital of the Republic of Latvia, and six territorial departments. Border Guards receive education at the State Border Guard College which is located near European Union external border in Rezekne.
