Economic implementation of the assumption of cantonal police tasks

Federal Customs Administration (today Federal Office for Customs and Border Security)

Key facts

Together with the Border Guard (BG), the Federal Customs Administration (FCA) performs security tasks in border areas, e.g. checks on individuals. In order to exploit the potential for synergies with the tasks of the cantonal police as much as possible, the FCA concluded administrative agreements with most cantons. Since 1 August 2016, the Federal Department of Finance (FDF) has been responsible for concluding the agreements.
