Gendarmerie


Explanation:
Gendarmería es la traducción de la palabra francesa "Gendarmerie". Por tanto si tiene que traducir esta palabra sería mejor que utilizase el original francés en el caso de que no exista traducción inglesa de la misma. La "Gendarmerie" es una policía que actúa a nivel estatal.

This is difficult without knowing what country is being translated for what country. The above is for the U.S. and expresses the distinction between a federal or national police and the "gens d'armes" (Esp. Guardia Civil).
