Arma dei Carabinieri (Corps of Carabineers) is a police force for the military and civilians, now a branch of the Italian military. They have tougher training than most law enforcement agenies and a wider selection of weapons and equipment. They are involved in many jobs in Italy such as guarding important individuals or buildings and counter-terrorism. They are also one of the few police agencies that allows the carry of long-guns (Ex. Beretta 12 SMG) for patrol officers.
