Panjgur is divided into two areas as far as law enforcement is concerned. Area "A" is controlled by the Balochistan Police headed by a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), while "B" area is controlled by the Balochistan Levies Force headed by the Deputy Commissioner (DC) of the district. There is one police station at Chitkan, established in 1963. The police station at Chitkan is responsible for maintenance of law and order in a radius of 8 kilometres. Initially the whole district was controlled by the police, but in 1969 the district was bifurcated into two areas, "A" and "B".
