[Tagging] Feature Proposal - Voting results - Police facilites

There isn't any EU police or military force (that's still a political
discussion but there is none at the moment). The only existing thing is the
international cooperation that is increased between neighboring countries
and some special rules allowing one police force to pursue a suspect in the
other countries for some times (if they cross the border). Apart from that,
it is as everywhere : police force(s) separated by country.

For the proposal, the country specific tag could be just removed, as they
don't need to be mentioned on the global proposal (they are approved by the
local community in question (OSM France here), but they don't necessarily
need to be approved by the global communities). We have lots of local
tagging scheme in OSM, that are only defined in one country, and they work
well for them.

Thus, only voting for a proposal with the global tagging scheme would
probably be better (and leave the local tagging to the local communities
for the time being ?!).
