But amenity=police is currently used indiscriminately for *all* police stations, public-facing or not. That's what makes the current mapping inconsistent and impractical. To make it usable and consistent again, we'd at least have to either replace amenity=police by police=* in all non-public-facing police facilities or add police=* to the tagging of these facilities.
And, I don't think that tagging police stations as amenity=police and police=station would be too demanding for the average mapper. You just have to get used to it.
I simply find it undesirable to use different keys for things that are so closely connected in reality as is the case of police facilities.
