The logistical support as such is provided by 10 service centres (SER) spread on the whole territory. The Uccle centre acts as a co-ordination body.
One of the Directorate of Logistical Support’s main missions consists in ensuring the “operationalibility” and the availability of the means allocated to the Federal Police’s directorates and units in terms of vehicles, infrastructure, weapons and material in general. Consequently it is this Directorate that designs, adapts, makes, maintains, repairs and eliminates these specific means.
The local police zones can use an extensive range of specific police support resources and services – at their request and against payment – and benefit from proven expertise and low manufacturing costs.
Other activities carried out by the directorate include maintaining special vehicles and police motorbikes as well as putting armour plating and stripes (visual identification) on vehicles.
The directorate also assembles and maintains radars, customises vehicles, adapts and maintains weapons and manufactures special leather items that are not available in shops.
