I saw a previous question here about how it's possible for a non-citizen to become an officer in a few different German states, and Berlin mentions:

"Nur Deutsche im Sinne des Artikel 116 des Grundgesetzes der Bundesrepublik Deutschland oder Staatsangehöriger eines Mitgliedslandes der Europäischen Union. Für Angehörige anderer Nationalitäten gelten Sonderregelungen. " I was wondering if anyone knew or could figure out what nations this was referring to; I'm a US citizen.

Previous Expats question: Is it possible to become a policeman in Germany as a non-citizen?

The website that specifically states this: Landespolizei-Bundespolizei-Einstellungstest

  • Feeding the quoted text into Google translate yields "Only Germans within the meaning of Article 116 of the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany or a national of a member state of the European Union. Special rules apply to nationals of other nationalities" (and that agrees with my German). – Martin Bonner Dec 6 '18 at 13:16
  • very similar text is also found on berlin.de/polizei/beruf/polizist-polizistin-werden/…, except there it ends "Für Angehörige anderer Nationalitäten gelten Sonderregelungen – bei Bedarf bitte erfragen", and the last bit is "if necessary, please ask". I think you need to ask the Berlin police (and come back here and post the answer). – Martin Bonner Dec 6 '18 at 13:24
