English translation:Department of Internal Affairs
Explanation:
is the usual name given to the organization responsible for monitoring the behavior of governmental departments (police departments and federal agencies) in the United States. -- However, here's another way to go: A "corregidor" is a magistrate, and one of the primary duties of magistrates is the supervision or oversight of other members of the legal structure. So "Office of the Chief Magistrate" would also work.
