    I’m really interested in seeing battles where either desperation, lack of troops, or a battle suddenly spreading to a city has caused police officers to fight soldiers.

    If I recall correctly this happened in many cities taken by ISIS, quite often in a lot of the wars revolving around the balkanization of Europe, and sometimes in WW2

    The Philippine National Police sent their tactical unit the Special Action Force to Marawi City (in Mindanao) to fight ISIS-linked militants way back 2017, the Battle of Marawi. It’s the largest urban battle since the recapture of Manila from the Japanese during the Second World War.

    They were deployed in the front like the regular soldiers and Marines. [Here’s an example](https://youtu.be/GUB7NLv5U6U), a newsclip of SAF personnel in close quarters fighting in Marawi , you can hear the IS militants shouting takbirs nearby, it’s that close.

    There’s a [movie](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosul_(2019_action_film) about ISIS occupied Mosul that touches on this at the beginning.

    The majority of engagements in Croatia in 91 had police officers participating since the armed forces weren’t formed properly yet.

    Not sure about Bosnia though.

    In Sri Lanka our Normal Police and Police STF “basically police Commando’s formed by the UK SAS” took part and conducted operations against Tamil Tiger Rebels before the STF was formed in the 80’s when my dad was Jr Officer in the Army our normal Police would help the Army with Manning Artillery helping guard Artillery positions mainly Static Defence roles so Soldiers could go to the front line but there were occasions when Police,airman and sailors have come to the aid of Army camps close to being overrun although its usually the Army that responds to Police stations and Air fields that are close to being overrun

    Apparently South Vietnamese forces had Law Enforcement get involved in combat situations when the Viet Cong attacked urban areas during the Tet Offensive, however that was only from the Wikipedia source and from what I remember reading from it.

    RCMP Battle of Gustafson lake, at 2:13 is where the footage starts. My grandfather was there and has a bunch of photos of the APC’s and huey’s that they had with them. The account in the video is pretty accurate.
