Police officers were estimated on the base of the following criteria: appearance, politeness and assistance to travelers in solving their problems. As a result, the poll revealed three nominations and three winners in them.
Carabineers from Spain and Italy were distinguished as most attractive ones. Gendarmes from France turned out to be most polite and welcoming, whereas the policemen of Norway were recognized as most useful ones in the solution of tourists' problems.
