The name Chennai is of Telugu origin. It was derived from the name of a Telugu ruler Damarla Chennappa Nayakudu, father of Damarla Venkatapathy Nayak, a Nayak ruler who served as a general under Venkata III of the Vijayanagar Empire from whom the British acquired the town in 1639; the first official use of the name Chennai is said to be in a sale deed, dated 8 August 1639, to Francis Day of the East India Company before the Chennakesava Perumal Temple was built in 1646 while some scholars argue for the contrary. The name Madras is of native origin, has been shown to be in use before the British presence in India. A Vijayanagar-era inscription dated to the year 1367 that mentions the port of Mādarasanpattanam, along with other small ports on the east coast was discovered in 2015 and it was theorised that the aforementioned port is the fishing port of Royapuram. According to some sources, Madras was derived from Madraspattinam, a fishing-village north of Fort St George. However, it is uncertain.
The British military mapmakers believed Madras was Mundir-raj or Mundiraj,which was the name of a telugu community of rulers of nayakasThere are suggestions that it may have originated from a Portuguese phrase Mãe de Deus or Madre de Dios, which means "mother of God", due to Portuguese influence on the port city referring to a Church of St. Mary. In 1996, the Government of Tamil Nadu changed the name from Madras to Chennai. At that time many Indian cities underwent a change of name. However, the name Madras continues in occasional use for the city, as well as for places named after the city such as University of Madras, IIT Madras, Madras Institute of Technology, Madras Medical College, Madras Veterinary College, Madras Christian College. Stone age implements have been found near Pallavaram in Chennai. According to the Archaeological Survey of India, Pallavaram was a megalithic cultural establishment, pre-historic communities resided in the settlement; the region around Chennai has served as an important administrative and economic centre for many centuries.
During the 1st century CE, a poet and weaver named. From the 1st–12th century the region of present Tamil Nadu and parts of South India was ruled by the Cholas; the Pallavas of Kanchi built the areas of Mahabalipuram and Pallavaram during the reign of Mahendravarman I. They defeated several kingdoms including the Cheras and Pandyas who ruled over the area before their arrival. Sculpted caves and paintings have been identified from that period. Ancient coins dating to around 500 BC have been unearthed from the city and its surrounding areas. A portion of these findings belonged to the Vijayanagara Empire, which ruled the region during the medieval period; the Portuguese first arrived in 1522 and built a port called São Tomé after the Christian apostle, St. Thomas, believed to have preached in the area between 52 and 70 CE. In 1612, the Dutch established themselves near Pulicat, north of Chennai. On 20 August 1639 Francis Day of the East India Company along with the Nayak of Kalahasti Damarla Chennappa Nayakudu, travelled to the Chandragiri palace for an audience with the Vijayanager Emperor Peda Venkata Raya.
Day was seeking to obtain a grant for land on the Coromandel coast on which the Company could build a factory and warehouse for their trading activities and was successful i

Germany the Federal Republic of Germany, is a country in Central and Western Europe, lying between the Baltic and North Seas to the north, the Alps to the south. It borders Denmark to the north and the Czech Republic to the east and Switzerland to the south, France to the southwest, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to the west. Germany includes 16 constituent states, covers an area of 357,386 square kilometres, has a temperate seasonal climate. With 83 million inhabitants, it is the second most populous state of Europe after Russia, the most populous state lying in Europe, as well as the most populous member state of the European Union. Germany is a decentralized country, its capital and largest metropolis is Berlin, while Frankfurt serves as its financial capital and has the country's busiest airport. Germany's largest urban area is the Ruhr, with its main centres of Essen; the country's other major cities are Hamburg, Cologne, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Dresden, Bremen and Nuremberg. Various Germanic tribes have inhabited the northern parts of modern Germany since classical antiquity.
A region named Germania was documented before 100 AD. During the Migration Period, the Germanic tribes expanded southward. Beginning in the 10th century, German territories formed a central part of the Holy Roman Empire. During the 16th century, northern German regions became the centre of the Protestant Reformation. After the collapse of the Holy Roman Empire, the German Confederation was formed in 1815; the German revolutions of 1848–49 resulted in the Frankfurt Parliament establishing major democratic rights. In 1871, Germany became a nation state when most of the German states unified into the Prussian-dominated German Empire. After World War I and the revolution of 1918–19, the Empire was replaced by the parliamentary Weimar Republic; the Nazi seizure of power in 1933 led to the establishment of a dictatorship, the annexation of Austria, World War II, the Holocaust. After the end of World War II in Europe and a period of Allied occupation, Austria was re-established as an independent country and two new German states were founded: West Germany, formed from the American and French occupation zones, East Germany, formed from the Soviet occupation zone.
Following the Revolutions of 1989 that ended communist rule in Central and Eastern Europe, the country was reunified on 3 October 1990. Today, the sovereign state of Germany is a federal parliamentary republic led by a chancellor, it is a great power with a strong economy. As a global leader in several industrial and technological sectors, it is both the world's third-largest exporter and importer of goods; as a developed country with a high standard of living, it upholds a social security and universal health care system, environmental protection, a tuition-free university education. The Federal Republic of Germany was a founding member of the European Economic Community in 1957 and the European Union in 1993, it is part of the Schengen Area and became a co-founder of the Eurozone in 1999. Germany is a member of the United Nations, NATO, the G7, the G20, the OECD. Known for its rich cultural history, Germany has been continuously the home of influential and successful artists, musicians, film people, entrepreneurs, scientists and inventors.
Germany has a large number of World Heritage sites and is among the top tourism destinations in the world. The English word Germany derives from the Latin Germania, which came into use after Julius Caesar adopted it for the peoples east of the Rhine; the German term Deutschland diutisciu land is derived from deutsch, descended from Old High German diutisc "popular" used to distinguish the language of the common people from Latin and its Romance descendants. This in turn descends from Proto-Germanic *þiudiskaz "popular", derived from *þeudō, descended from Proto-Indo-European *tewtéh₂- "people", from which the word Teutons originates; the discovery of the Mauer 1 mandible shows that ancient humans were present in Germany at least 600,000 years ago. The oldest complete hunting weapons found anywhere in the world were discovered in a coal mine in Schöningen between 1994 and 1998 where eight 380,000-year-old wooden javelins of 1.82 to 2.25 m length were unearthed. The Neander Valley was the location where the first non-modern human fossil was discovered.
The Neanderthal 1 fossils are known to be 40,000 years old. Evidence of modern humans dated, has been found in caves in the Swabian Jura near Ulm; the finds included 42,000-year-old bird bone and mammoth ivory flutes which are the oldest musical instruments found, the 40,000-year-old Ice Age Lion Man, the oldest uncontested figurative art discovered, the 35,000-year-old Venus of Hohle Fels, the oldest uncontested human figurative art discovered. The Nebra sky disk is a bronze artefact created during the European Bronze Age attributed to a site near Nebra, Saxony-Anhalt, it is part of UNESCO's Memory of the World Programme. The Germanic tribes are thought to date from the Pre-Roman Iron Age. From southern Scandinavia and north Germany, they expanded south and west from the 1st century BC, coming into contact with the Celtic tribes of Gaul as well
The Mossos d'Esquadra are the autonomous police force of Catalonia replacing the Spanish Policía Nacional and Guardia Civil. The force was named in the 19th century. On 21 July 1950 the Deputation of Barcelona was authorised to create a small security force using the historical title Mossos d'Esquadra; these new Mossos were a militarized corps having little similarity to the earlier incarnations, with limited powers and small numbers, in charge of protecting the government buildings of the Province of Barcelona. With the return of democracy to Spain, the Mossos d'Esquadra grew in number and powers. Since 25 October 1980 the force has been under the authority of the Generalitat de Catalunya; the Escuadras de Paisanos known as the Esquadres de Catalunya, were men-at-arms who had fought as irregulars in the War of the Spanish Succession, were brought together by the mayor of the town of Valls near Tarragona between 1719–1721. The corps was constituted as a militia to provide security to trade fairs.
It was created as a complement to the regular troops of the Bourbon army, which opposed the Miquelets, who survived as rebel supporters of Archduke Charles. It was manned by local people, who had to speak Catalan and be familiar with the paths and hiding places in the area, it was placed under military jurisdiction but was less centralised than the Spanish police force formed in 1817, or the yet-to-be-established ‘Guardia Civil’, both of which were systematically deployed away from their home regions, thus strangers to the places where they served. Throughout the centuries it has passed back and forth from Catalan authority to Spanish military command several times, they were dissolved in 1868 by General Prim after the fall of Queen Isabella II of Spain, since the Mossos had always been royalists. They were reinstated in 1876 under the reign of Isabella's son king Alfonso XII of Spain, but only in the province of Barcelona. Under his son Alfonso XIII of Spain, the Mossos were not well regarded in Catalonia by the Commonwealth of Catalonia, who paid them but had no control over them.
They flourished, under Primo de Rivera's dictatorship. When the Second Spanish Republic was proclaimed, the Mossos sided with the Generalitat de Catalunya. After the Spanish Civil War, the last Mossos left Catalonia with the President of the Generalitat, the corps was dissolved by the Francoist authorities; the Mossos d'Esquadra have now replaced Spain's Guardia Civil and National Police within the territory of Catalonia. This process of substitution began in 1994 and was completed in 2008. In November 2005, the Mossos took full duties in the city of Barcelona; the Statute of Autonomy of Catalonia defines that the scope of action of the Generalitat Police Force – Mossos d'Esquadra is the whole of the Catalan territory, states that it exercises all the functions of a police force in the following fields: Public safety and public order. Administrative policing, including that deriving from State regulations. Judicial policing and criminal investigation, including the various forms of organised crime and terrorism, in the terms established by law.
The Mossos d'Esquadra are a police force of the Spanish state placed under the authority of the Generalitat de Catalunya within the territory of the autonomous community of Catalonia. The Policia Nacional and the Guardia Civil, on the other hand, are commanded directly by the Spanish ministry of the interior, they keep some officers in Catalonia to support the fight against terrorism, to handle identity documents and other limited responsibilities of the central government. However, when there was a dispute between the governments of Catalonia and of Spain about Catalonia becoming independent, the Catalonian government called a referendum for 1 October 2017, the Spanish government sent thousands of members of the national Guardia Civil and Spanish National Police to Barcelona and Girona with the intention of preventing voting, as the referendum was illegal according to the sentence of the Spanish Constitutional Court; the Mossos are trained in the Institut de Seguretat Pública de Catalunya, which trains local police officers.

Policja is the generic name for the police in Poland. The Polish police force was known as policja throughout the Second Polish Republic, in modern post-communist Republic of Poland since 1990, its current size is ca. 25,000 civilian employees. Among the branches in the force are: Criminal Service, Traffic Police Service, Prevention Service and Supporting Service. Most towns and some villages have their own city guards, which supervise public order and road safety. However, city guards have jurisdiction only over misdemeanors and in cases of crimes may serve only in a supportive role for the state police; the force's name, translates into the English language as Police. An individual officer is called a policjant. A police station is known as Komenda Policji or Komisariat Policji both of which translate more or less into English as Police Commissariat. Female officers may be referred to as policjantki, the singular of, policjantka. On the whole, officers' individual ranks are not used by the general public and thus when addressing an officer, it is common to hear the term Pan, Polish for mister/miss used to refer to police officers.
On occasion, this may not be followed by the term Oficer. In 1919, with the re-independence of the Polish nation, the state reorganised itself along non-federalist lines and established a centralised form of government. Under the auspices of the new government, a new national police force was formed. During the inter-war period, a number of key law enforcement duties were delegated to other formations, such as the Border Guard and Military Gendarmerie. With the end of World War II and the onset of the communist period, the new Soviet backed government decided to radically change the structure of policing in Poland; the reality turned out to be the opposite and the Milicja instead represented a rather state-controlled force, used to exert political repression on the citizens. The Milicja was, for the most part, detested by the general populace. After the fall of the communist government in Poland, the system was reformed once again, this time reviving the pre-war name of'Policja' and albeit with a few minor changes, the general system of law-enforcement of the Second Republic.
Today, most common types include various models from Kia Škoda, Alfa Romeo, Ford Mondeo, Opel and Toyota, as of 2011 the FSO Polonez is no longer in use. The Polish police force has, since joining the European Union, been undergoing a thorough restructuring and has in the process acquired a large number of new vehicles. In addition to standard sedan and hatchback model vehicles, the Policja has been investing significant amounts of money in developing their ability to respond to any incident no matter where it may be, this has in turn led to the purchase of a large number of all-terrain 4x4 vehicles and multi-purpose vans and trucks; this expansion in capabilities was a stated requirement of the police force's restructuring program. Beginning in 2009, the painting scheme is being modified to a silver body design with blue reflective strip, similar to modern German police cars. Traditionally, vehicles were painted a dark blue color with side doors painted in white, with white stripes and the word "POLICJA" on both sides.
Earlier versions had a thinner stripe with the word "POLICJA" written under it. This design was adopted from the paint scheme used by the communist milicja; some used vehicles had visible traces of the word "POLICJA" being corrected from "MILICJA", with the first two letters in a different shade of white, on a patch of a different shade of blue. All uniformed and most non-uniformed officers of the state police are armed. In addition to their firearm, Policja officers carry handcuffs and a number of other pieces of equipment which includes a personal radio system for communication with other officers and their police station. Pepper spray is commonly issued to officers in order to provide them with a non-lethal alternative weapon with which to incapacitate violent suspects. Riot police, when needs be, are provided with non-ballistic body armour and shields. In such cases they dispose LRAD units; the existence of a well-enforced ban on civilian-owned firearms in Poland has aided the police in keeping gun crime to a minimum, thus the incidence of police firearms use is low.
The below list is not intended to be a full list of all the vehicles used by the Polish Police, instead it lists the most used vehicles. The Policja has a total of 16 helicopters at its disposal, these are based in: Krakó
National Police Corps
The National Police Corps is the national civilian police force of Spain. The CNP is responsible for policing urban areas, whilst countryside policing is the responsibility of the Civil Guard, the Spanish gendarmerie; the CNP operates under the authority of Spain's Ministry of the Interior. They handle criminal investigation, judicial and immigration matters; the powers of the National Police Corps varies according to the autonomous communities, Ertzaintza in the Basque Country, Mossos d'Esquadra in Catalonia, Policía Foral in Navarre are the primary police agencies while BESCAM in the Madrid region is more of a resources provider. In Andalusia, Asturias and Valencia the National Police units are functionally acting directly under the orders of the autonomous communities to which they are attached; the 1986 organic law unifying the separate uniformed and plainclothes branches of the national police was a major reform that required a considerable period of time to be brought into full effect.
The former plainclothes service, known as the Cuerpo Superior de Policía, but referred to as the "secret police" the Cuerpo General de Policía, consisted of some 9,000 officers. Prior to 1986, it had a supervisory and coordinating role in police operations, conducted domestic surveillance, collected intelligence, investigated major crimes, issued identity documents, carried out liaison with foreign police forces; the uniformed service, the Cuerpo de Policía Armada which became the National Police in 1979, was a separate organization with a complement of about 50,000 officers, including a small number of female recruits who were first accepted for training in 1984. The Director General of the National Police Corps, a senior official of the Ministry of Interior, commanded 13 regional headquarters, 50 provincial offices, about 190 municipal police stations. In the nine largest cities, several district police stations served separate sections of the city; the chief of police of each station was in command of both the uniformed and the plainclothes officers attached to the station.
A centrally controlled Special Operations Group was an elite fighting unit trained to deal with terrorist and hostage situations. The principal weapons used by the uniformed police were 9mm pistols, 9mm submachine guns, CETME and NATO 7.62mm rifles, various forms of riot equipment. Their original uniform consisted of dark brown jackets; the initial training phase for recruits to the National Police Corps was nine months, followed by a year of practical training. Promotions to corporal and sergeant major were based on seniority, additional training, performance. In the Franco era, most police officers were seconded from the army. Under a 1978 law, future police officers were to receive separate training, army officers detailed to the police were to be permanently transferred. By 1986 only 170 army officers remained in the National Police Corps. Under the 1986 organic law, military-type training for police was to be terminated, all candidate officers were to attend the Higher Police School at Ávila, which had served as the three-year training center for the Superior Police Corps.
The ranks of the plainclothes corps—commissioners and inspectors of first and third class—were to be assimilated into the ranking system of the uniformed police—colonel, lieutenant colonel, major and lieutenant. Two lower categories—subinspection and basic—would include all nonofficer uniformed personnel; the newly unified National Police Corps was to be responsible for issuing identity cards and passports, as well as for immigration and deportation controls, extradition, gambling controls and supervision of private security forces. Franco's Policía Armada had once been dreaded as one of the most familiar symbols of the regime's oppressiveness. During the 1980s, the police underwent an internal transformation process, being brought to adopt the new democratic spirit of the times; the police supported the constituted government during the 1981 coup attempt. Led by the new police trade union, the police demonstrated in 1985 against right-wing militants in their ranks and cooperated in efforts to punish misconduct and abuses of civil rights by individual officers.
