The Special Branch is the Malaysian government intelligence agency. It was established by the British administration in the early 20th century, based on the Special Branch set up in the United Kingdom. Today, the Special Branch operates as a branch of the Royal Malaysian Police force.

During the Malayan Emergency, when the Malayan Communist Party guerillas were in open revolt, the Special Branch successfully infiltrated the party chain of command. The Special Branch's activities during the Emergency were widely praised, garnering accolades such as one calling it "one of the finest establishments of its kind in the world".

Other intelligence agencies sent observers to a Special Branch training centre in the capital, Kuala Lumpur to learn its tactics of infiltration and espionage.

The Special Branch is also known as Cawangan Khas in local terms.
