    Jandarma and Polis

    Just out of curiosity, has any of the members ever needed to make an emergency call to the Jandarma and/or Polis. As foreigners, many people expect that when you contact the emergency services the person receiving the call speaks English. Ironically here in the UK, there will be a limited...

    Jandarma and Zabita

    Can anyone explain to me the difference between the Jandarma and the Zabita, who are the police and who are the soldiers? Who do you call in an emergency and what number do you ring?

    Here's a bit of language trivia that I've wanted an answer to for a long while. Why is that we see the word "Jandarma" on uniforms, buildings, vehicles, signs, the official website etc etc.. but the Turkish press almost always refer to them as Gendarmes and their organisation as the Gendarmerie ?

    jandarma checks

    We have a villa in Yalikavak and have owned it for about 5 years. The developer, who lives on the site, had decided that visitors to the site, owners or renters, are annoying to him. There are 23 villas on the site and there are very strict rules on the site to keep it tranquil and peaceful...
