Biuro ds. Zwalczania Przestępczości


from the website:

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension protects the public by providing accurate, timely and complete investigative assistance, forensic laboratory services, criminal justice information systems, fingerprint information and training to the criminal justice community throughout Minnesota.

It is part of Minnesota Department of Safety ( BIURO BEZPIECZEŃSTWA PUBLICZNEGO STANU MINNESOTA)

In Poland there is no direct equivalent to this organisation. The best translation , in my opinion, would be:


Your sentence would go like this:

Do tej sprawy wezwano FBI oraz Biuro ds. Zwalczania Przestępczości Stanu Minnesota.

By the way, METRO in your previous question is, of course, not subway but stands for METROPOLITAN = MIEJSKI (e.g. Metropolitan Police), MY MISTAKE, I AM SORRY, and thanks for pointing this out. I was helping with this question in a bit of a rush, you see.

Biuro Obaw Przed Przestepcami

I can't believe someone came up with this idiotic name. My first reaction was, "it's a spoof". But if it's a real product of a legalo-bureaucratic harebrain, then yes, Biuro Ujmowania Przestepcow (literally) or Biuro Scigania Przestepczosci (real meaning).

    Aren't you apprehensive?
