For operational purposes, the Malden Police Service is divided into three geographical divisions known within the service as "constabularies". These mainly represent the main population centres on Malden, (being La Trinité, Le Port and Specialist Operations). Police Academy as of end of 2020 is the only constabulary without a dedicated location, while NCA share a location with Le Port
The five existing divisions with their divisional identifiers and their divisional commander are as follows:
|Identifier||District||Partnership Working Areas||District Commander||District HQ|
|TR||La Trinité||CSI Leon Kennedy||La Trinité Police Station|
|PO||Le Port||CSI TBA||Le Port Police Station|
|NCA||National Crime Agency||CSI Wolfy||Le Port Police Station|
|SO||Specialist Operations||CSI OneShot||Spec Ops Police Station|
|AC||Police Academy||Responsible for training officers||CSI Scream||Affected by location of trainees|
The service headquarters is located at La Trinité Police Station in the town of Trinité.
- Armed Response (AR) – Responsible for providing armed response and support across the whole of Malden, Armed Response travels in ARVs (Armed Response Vehicles) responding to calls involving firearms, weapons and gangs, which may put other officers at significant risk. Armed Response is an amalgamation of officers with a higher level of firearms proficiency.
- National Police Air Service (NPAS) – Provides centralised air support to the Malden Police Service, based from the National Police Air Service Headquarters located on the North side in the Spec Ops HQ
- Marine Policing Unit (MPU) – Responsible for policing the Malden coastline and surrounding waters. They utilise a specialised fleet of watercraft to perform maritime operations, based at Le Port Police Station and the Marine Policing Unit Headquarters located beside the
- Specialist Protection Group (SPG) – Provides personal armed protection for the Royal family, Prime Minister (Mayor) and other ministers, ambassadors, visiting heads of state and other Very Important Persons (VIPs). The Specialist Protection Group is also responsible for providing armed officers that guard important locations such as Her Majesty's Treasury, 10 Kavala Street and the RBA Reserve. They are responsible for escorting all the aforementioned people and are occasionally involved in prisoner transport. They use vehicles to halt traffic, and use armed cars at the rear of the escort for armed assistance and traffic control. Once the escort has passed, the roads are immediately opened. All SPG officers are armed.
Following controversy over various Police Complaints where officers refused to identify themselves by name, and a statement by CC Tadworth in early 2016 that "the public has a right to be able to identify any uniformed officer whilst performing their duty", collar numbers were introduced. They are allocated individually to each officer, who must tell you their collar number except in a small amount of specific circumstances. Every officer (except those that are masked or plain clothed) is required to display their collar number at all times.
- Police Community Support Officer (PCSO): The rank assigned to all newly recruited officers, displayed by a blue epaulette with "PCSO" written on it.

- Police Constable (PC): "PC" Written on the epaulette with "Police Constable", name and collar number also displayed. Note that any officer above Police Constable has passed all their initial training as provided by the Police Academy and therefore at this point officers become entirely responsible for their own decision making in relation to the National Decision Model (NDM)
- Sergeant (SGT): Three pointing-down chevrons above the divisional call sign and shoulder number, officers above this rank may have additional powers to authorise specific actions.
