    Hello!
    Does anyone know how to translate Número de Policía into English?

    Context (just an example, not to translate):
    Unidad constructiva con identificación propia (calle, número de policía y número de casa).

    Thank you/Gracias.

    Hi,
    Unless I had an arrest record, I would think my only "número de policía" would be my police district number or code.
    But what country are you referring to? Maybe in some countries everyone must be registered with the police. That might be a "police registry number" or something similar.
    Regards.

    ¿Y qué es Número de policía en español? En el contexto que pones, yo no tengo ni idea de a qué te refieres.

    Hi, thanks for your replies!
    I think "número de policía" is some number assigned by the police when new houses or buildings are built... When the street names are defined and also the numbers of the buildings (I'm not so sure myself).
    I've used House Number

    Spanish
    En España se denomina número de policía al número asignado a las casas y parcelas (sin casa), es más técnico que número de casa. En realidad policía significa también "orden", por eso en en ejército se denomina "revista de policía" a la revisión del estado de orden/desorden de las pertenencias y vestimentas de los soldados.
