The Chartered Police of Navarre (Spanish: Policía Foral de Navarra, Basque: Nafarroako Foruzaingoa) is the regional police force for the chartered autonomous community of Navarre in Spain. It operates across the region, and was founded from a traffic police unit set up by the Provincial Council of Navarre in 1929.

As of 2007, the force had 925 policemen with medium-term plans to increase that number to about 1,200.
