    That suggests to me<br>
    police=military .. military=naval/army/air_force/* !!!<br>
    <br>
    But I think you will be better off with<br>
    police=water/air .. some places do have police helicopters with
    bases too so here is a tag for them?<br>
    <br>
    The police=military will probably have their own barracks and
    offices too? <br>
    <br>
    Then you have state police, federal police .. and many others
    depending on where you are in the world. And sheriffs! <br>

    There are various 'prisons'. The OSM one is one kind.<br>
    Police can have small ones they hold people in e.g. while drunk, or
    before sending on to court, courts can have their own too. <br>
