The Internal Security Department is the department responsible for administering everything linked to security. It takes charge of maintaining security within the country through use of the police force. This is the main means to maintain security. Hence, it is permissible for the Internal Security Department to use the police at any time, in any way it likes, and its orders must be implemented immediately. However, if the police require the help of the armed forces, a request is submitted to the Khalifah. He can order the Army to help the Internal Security Department or to provide it with a military force to help it in maintaining the security, or he can issue any order he sees fit. He is also entitled to refuse such requests and demand that the police carry out the task themselves.
