Serbian term or phrase: dežurstvo/dežuran
Policijski službenici koji obavljaju dežurstvo, u okviru obavljanja poslova na suzbijanju kriminala, obezbeđuju: hitno obaveštavanje policijskih službenika organizacionih jedinica nadležnih za suzbijanje kriminala; obaveštavanje nadležnih tužilaca o događajima o kojima je obaveštavanje obavezno; prenošenje naloga za postupanje izdatih od strane nadležnog tužioca ili rukovodioca organizacionih jedinica policije; formiranje uviđajnih ekipa (po spisku dežurnih tužilaca, dežurnih policijskih službenika i dr.) i njihov brz izlazak na mesto izvršenja krivičnog dela; obezbeđenje mesta događaja potrebnim brojem policijskih službenika; koordiniraju i usmeravaju mere i aktivnosti potrage za licima i predmetima i preduzimaju druge potrebne aktivnosti.

Ako stavim "on duty", to zvuči kao da su "na dužnosti", što nije isto.

On stand by mi ne zvuči kako treba za ovaj pojam, nisam siguran.

Kako onda nisu na dužnosti ako su dežurni u stanici? :)

-------------------------------------------------- duty on call&ie=utf-8&oe=...
"(For example a fireman)
There are two teams on duty that night. They are awake, doing whatever work is needed when there is no fire.
There is also one team who are doing on-call duty - they are sleeping in the fire station, ready to wake as soon as there is an alarm.
There is also a team who are on call. They are at home sleeping, but have their phones switched on and are ready to come in to the fire-station if needed (if there is a big fire needing more than three teams)."
On-call duty (Bereitschaftsdienst) performed by a doctor, where they are required to be physically present in the hospital, must be regarded as constituting, in its totality, working time for the purposes of that directive, even where the person concerned is permitted to rest at his place of work during the periods when their services are not required

Notes to answerer
Asker: Ovde se ne radi o tome, vec o policajcima koji su dezurni u stanici, zato je pipavo. On call je npr. tuzilac koga nocu probude da ode na mesto izvrsenja krivicnog dela i sl

disagree  Daryo: is opisa se vidi da su "dežurni" u stanici - u normalnom radnom vremenu.
