In 2008 the States of Guernsey Government approved proposals from the Home Department regarding the Future of Law Enforcement. As a consequence of those resolutions the Guernsey Customs and Excise, Immigration and Nationality Service was tasked to undertake a transitional exercise in order to evolve into a modern operationally independent law enforcement Agency to be known as the GBA. The GBA was established in shadow status in April 2010.

The GBA brings together the various work previously carried out by the Customs and Excise, Immigration and Nationality Service with additional responsibilities for assigned cross border crime. The GBA policy agenda is shaped by the States of Guernsey through the Home Department and Law Enforcement Commission.In addition to protecting the border the GBA plays a principal role in delivering the Bailiwick's strategies to tackle, drug trafficking, financial crime, money laundering, serious and organised smuggling and illegal immigration.   The Agency is charged with revenue collection and protection on behalf of the States of Guernsey. The GBA also has responsibility for the operation of the Bailiwick's passport office on behalf of his Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, who exercises the Royal prerogative on behalf of the Sovereign.

The GBA is split into four Divisions:
