Switzerland. The Republic and Canton of Neuchâtel. La Chaux-de-Fonds. Railway station. Narcotics squad. "Narko" operation. A police officer in plain-clothes seats on a concrete bench. He is keeping a eye on the situation and looks for people selling illegal substances (drugs). Plainclothes law enforcement is a method used by police. The policemen wear plainclothes or "ordinary clothes" instead of a uniform in order to avoid detection or identification as law enforcement agents. Police officers in plainclothes must identify themselves when using their police powers. 27.03.15 © 2015 Didier Ruef
