Thank you thank you. That makes very good sense, and how clever of you to have inferred from context of "милиция". I should have given more context. It is of course about drugs. My only reservation is that I only found two hits in Google for this.

National Science Centre? Novosibirsk Science Centre?


Explanation:
The only two expansions of this abbreviation I can find are Национальный научный центр and Новосибирский научный центр, but I have no idea if either of them make any sense in your context.

agree  Сергей Лузан: научный центр - quite sure. "Nizhegorodskiy(?)" if there is any.

  -> Thank you.

agree  Vladimir Dubisskiy: or Nizhnevartovsky/ Novorossijski/Nerchinski/...
4 hrs
  -> or Nogino, or any other place you can think of beginning with N.

agree  Alexandra Tussing: possible, given lack of context
5 hrs
  -> Thank you

agree  Vassyl Trylis: Новосибирский научный центр. Масса ссылок в Гугле. "Национальный" редко употребляется в России - чаще, скажем, в Украине (где "национальных" заведений очень много).
7 hrs
  -> Да, я сам думаю, что эта версия более вероятна.
