Who We Are

Our History

In Italy there are various Police Forces with different roles, among whom there’s the Local Police.
In Milan, Local Police was born on the 4th October,  1860.
It was made up of 50 agents, called“Survegliant”. They wore a very elegant blue uniform, with a top hat,  black gloves, a rattan walking stick and the gun hidden below the jacket, not to hurt the sensibility of the population, still remembering the domination ages. The citizens kindly welcomed those agents, calling them familiarly “ghisa”, probably because of the shape of their uniform, which could remember a ghisa (a sort of iron) stove.

In the next seventy years many changes happened, the number of agents reached the  800 units and the Major entrusted their management to a Chief and two inspectors.  The roles of motorcyclist and horsemen agents were founded too.
Since 1959 to date the General Quarter of Milan Local Police is the “Palazzo del Capitano di Giustizia” located in Via Beccaria, 19, in the center of Milan.

The traffic agents began to study new techniques to detect car crashes with the use of cameras and to improve manual traffic regulation, becoming the first manual traffic lights.

Milan Local Police is always in first line to help people struck by natural calamities.
In 1976 there was a very important innovation with the entrance of first woman in Milan Local Police Force.
The city of Milan has changed in many ways so far, It became an international and multicultural city with new problems to solve. And also its Local Police has changed with it, always trying to help people to live in the best way possible.
