The PIK is established as an executive agency of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MoIA) to investigate criminal offences which are allegedly committed by the KP officers regardless of rank and position while on duty or off duty. It is mandated to ensure that the police organization is accountable to the people it serves and maintains high standards of integrity. It is comprised of civilian staff and is not – directly or indirectly – linked to the KP and is independent from the police organization financially and logistically. PIK exercises two fundamental functions: inspection and investigation.
The PIK was inaugurated in June 2006 by the local institutions and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Mission in Kosovo (OMiK). Since 2005, OMiK supported the agency in structuring and developing legislation to regulate its work.

OMiK also assisted the PIK in raising its public profile to inform residents about their right to file complaints related to the conduct of KP officers and acquainting people with the work and objectives of the PIK. Additionally, OMiK contributed to the drafting process of the Law No.03/L –231 on Police Inspectorate of Kosovo (2010) and other related sub-legal acts and regulations. In 2018, upon their request, OMiK is engaged in supporting the PIK to build its operational capacity in effectively conducting investigations and in developing internal accountable procedures within the agency through provision of specialized and advanced training in investigation of serious and organized crime, and particularly corruption.
