Coppers across Spain must, as from today, bark “a sus ordenes, mi …” when addressed by a superior officer. (At your orders, my … insert rank).
The Spanish police union says that it´s another step towards the militarization of the civil police force, and ask that a simple “morning, boss” be permissible.
The Guardia have always had to snap this out, being a military unit, but the National, Local and Autonomous forces never did, something that always cracked me up. Especially when given with a salute, over the phone.
