I am translating an action movie. A man is given a tour of a police station and shown the locker room, evidence room and riot room. I know what a riot is, but does anyone know what a riot room is? I googled it, and it seems to be a popular name for music venues, but in a police station...?

    It is the room where the equipment to deal with a riot would be stored. Is the film Hot Fuzz by any chance? :p

    Yes, it is "Hot Fuzz", and so the "riot room" is a joke, as this sleepy British village hardly needs equipment for battling riots. Thank you very much, Welshie!
