for-profit companies, like hospitals or construction companies, that would
serve general public and compete in business environment in order to create
additional revenue stream for their police division. I don't think it would
be wise to tag them police=hospital or police=commercial either?“

I agree. In Indonesia my local police station has a public clinic,
pharmacy, daycare, church and mosque. The military base has all of these,
plus some general merchandise shops. It’s a way to improve public relations
(and perhaps make some money?). Oh, and the airfield transports goods by
cargo plane at market price.

But these businesses and services should not be tagged under a “police” key.
