The Iraqi Police Service is the uniformed Territorial police force responsible for the enforcement of civil law within Iraq. The current organisation, structure and recruitment practice was guided by the Coalition Provisional Authority following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The command of the police belongs to the reformed Government of Iraq under the auspices of the Ministry of the Interior. The abbreviation "IP" is used to refer to Iraqi Police, while the initialism "ISF" is usually used to refer to the broader "Iraqi Security Forces". (via Freebase)
