My impression in the films is that policemen in USA use much weapons and are few educated with people .-

In Spain and Italy my experience is that Carabinieri and the Guardia Civil are very educated,and the
Guardia Civil is very effective.- On France,UK and Germany of these countries I have no experience but I have good references.

This is a no-brainer: In the Nordic countries. Well educated, friendly, professional, effective and most importantly: uncorrupted. It's even unfair to say ACAB to them.
Ok, the Carabinieri may be somewhat effective, I wouldn't put much faith in a Sicilian or Calabrese one...


The US police is a joke and a disgrace to the badge. BTW, the police in the US is 100 times more lethal than the Finnish one.

The Metropolitan Police in London and other forces in Great Britain were very much based on the principle of a civil police service which served the community as opposed to more militaristic Gendarmeries in other parts of Europe.

In terms of complaints, the police have their own professional standards units, however where cases are more serious or you are unhappy with the police response, the Indpendent Police Complaints Commision (IPCC) may become involved. This is a seperate organisation to the police largely made up of investigators with a legal background with no connection to the police. It was recently announced that even greater powers are to be given to the IPCC, extra staff are to recruited and the organisation may be rebranded 'The Office for Police Conduct'.

The Police in Great Britain remain a largely unarmed police force, with less than 10% of officers in London armed, and around 5% of police officers armed nationally.

Is not the American police academy like 3-6 months? In Norway it is three years. I have also noticed that many police officers in the United States are rather short and / or obese.

This year to join the spanish civil guard there are 800 places and there is 32500
applicants -

The Test exams include a group of culture and of math, a group athletics and a psicologica selection that is the most demanding .-

Those who pass the exams, they study in the Academy 9 months and 5 month more
of practice with a end exams and only all this for be a base guard.

Later they will return to study more months to do many specialties.-

I think the main reason for the difference between the police in the U.S. and in Europe is the difference in training. As far as I know in most European countries the training for police officers takes 3 years. A lot of time is used for teaching psychology and how to de-escalate situations. That can never work if the training takes just 3-6 month. And probably a big portion of this time is used to firing practices.

And that are the results:

First of all, to enter into polizia you must pass a test which you can enter if you have an Italian citizenship, an age that's between 18 and 30 years old, physique and behaviour that can be judged as suitable (regarding physique, a height of at least 165 cms and at most weight/height ratio of 1:1), graduation from high school and a clean criminal record

The test itself consists of a selective written exam, physical exam and assessment of one's behavioural and psycholigical attitude. After having passed the test, you must pass one year of professional formation in one of the Schools that are dotted throughout the country.

Will write more later on about the carabinieri whose tests and exams are stricter and which i know little about. By the way, polizia is armed here with a Beretta pistol and lately it seems a spy pen and pepper spray. Incidents such as the one in the USA are uncommon as the Beretta pistol is rarely used

I'm honestly starting to wonder if your broken English is some kind of a joke. I speak several languages (poorly), but it continues to reach new levels of unintelligible.
