Spanish term or phrase: seccional
From the headed paper of a Colombian public prosecutors office:
"Fiscalia treinta y una seccional"
Would "Public Prosecutors Office Number Thirty One" be acceptable? I understand seccional to mean something like branch office. Thanks, colleagues!

in my [usually inadequate] oxford it says that for Colombia, seccional is section. But I will certainly defer to Colombians out there - ¿hay alguien por ahí?
