The American Samoa Department of Public Safety, formerly the American Samoa Territorial Police is the police law enforcement agency for American Samoa, which has jurisdiction anywhere in the territory. It was created to protect the lives and property of American Samoans. The DPS has police, corrections and fire divisions.
In 2008 former Tafuna warden Mika Kelemete, along with a prison guard at Tafuna, received a civil rights violation prison sentence from U.S. federal authorities.
