Municipal Police is a municipal uniformed formation which came into being by the capacities of the City Council to maintain peace and order on the premises of the city of Katowice.
There is a free 24-hour available emergency telephone number 986 for the Municipal Police or 112 for the City Emergency Centre.
While performing the penal procedures imposing fines for the committed offences on people who are not Polish citizens but are on the territory of Poland is regulated by the Bill of 24 September 2001 Code of Procedures in Offence Cases (Official Gazette Announcing Current Legislaton of 29 September 2001 including subsequent changes).
According to the above mentioned bill a person who does not possess the Polish citizenship but temporarily remains on the territory of Poland or a person who does not have a steady place of residence might be penalised with a cash fine. The fine becomes legally valid on the point of paying the fine to the officer who issued it. The municipal policeman who imposes a cash fine is obliged to define the amount of money to be paid, to inform the offender about the offence committed and to inform him/her about the right to refuse to accept the fine as well as the legal consequences of such a decision.
