General Abdel Razaq Aslan, a defector from the Syrian Army is a commander of the Turkey-led police in the  town.

In 2016, reports appeared that Turkey was recruiting Syrian refugees (males aged between 20 and 35 years) in order to create police and security units in the Turkish-controlled area in northern Syria. The deployment of police units to Jarabulus is the first public result of this effort.
