In Italy there are five main, state-wide, police corps:

  * /Polizia di Stato/: a civil organization with civil jurisdiction (/with several different branches dealing with specific activities/).
  * /Carabinieri/: a military branch with military jurisdiction, but also civil jurisdiction.
  * /Polizia penitenziaria/:  a civil organization handling prisons, but with also other civil jurisdictions.
  * /Guardia di finanza/: a military organization, but depending from the Ministry of Finance, with civil jurisdiction on financial matters.
  * /Corpo delle capitanerie di porto - Guardia costiera/: a military organization, roughly comparable to the US Coast Guard.

Add to that several different local regional/provincial/metro polices.

Of particular interest (/for those interested in such things.../) is the "/Compagnia barracellare/" (https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compagnia_barracellare), operating in Sardinia and that, having been founded in the 1560, represent the oldest existing European police force.

So, essentially all Italian police forces have civil jurisdiction with only the Carabinieri having military jurisdiction too. If I'm not mistaken...
