straz miejska?

The above eat more do noughts than real police and do less work , similar to uk pcsos. plenty of villages around me want them liquidated, busy bodies basically. currently running around checking that the firewood we are burning has less than 25% moisture and that our cesspits are not leaking otherwise mandat (Fine) yawn ,

straz granicy

These do a good job , border police they keep merkels migrants out of poland.

In fact, I was controlled by border police today. (They were aware of my going) and would like know do they check people when they receive a calling ? Im sure my wifeys family called them (they want to seperate us) but do not know what was the reason. I do not like judge people before Im sure. So its possible they will call and border police will check me specially? Its a pity I have been living here for 7 years for the first time I was controlled at public.

I do not want him at my house do they check the foreigner

If you are legal in poland then there is not a problem, it is common for us to be stopped and questioned from time to time especially late at night, I find it comforting that people are watching and keeping an eye out for criminals, illegals and drunk drivers.

But the straz granicza do not fool around I live in a border area where migrants sometimes enter to do cheap shopping or fuel, the border guards are known to give illegals a good thrashing (no papers to show connection to poland) before driving them to a remote mountain border post and throwing them out of the van to fend for themselves in deep snow and freezing temperatures.

Bus station.

You mean the bus station with intercity/trans-border connections ? I saw it several times, they arrive and ask "foreign looking" people for papers to check if they are here legally. Sometimes they also use to stand near the roads and stop cars with foreign plates to check them and that's not necessarily in the border areas. So if you are "foreign looking", quite likely that was a random check. If someone reported you, they would rather visit at home.

@dolnoslask

Yes, Im legal of course and I hold a permanent residence card. To be honest after 7 years first time they controlled me at public and this was happened exactly when I visited my wifeys family for easter. Thats why I was surprised. They asked me many detailed questions. Maybe its because they could not have found at the house where Im registered recently.

Yes, intercity/bus connections. But where I have been to is a very small city and there is no border closed to the city. My wifeys mom want to seperate us so thats the only reason I wondered do they control randomly or someone called to control me.

Thanks for the promt responses.

To the OP: Best not to live in the redneck areas of Poland, as Dolno has outlined. You will be safe in major cities and your civil rights will be respected. Stay clear of small Polish towns where the authorities are thugs who couldn't otherwise get a job, and who will enjoy harassing you.

Sad, but true.

Then you have every right to be here maybe, someone did call them it happens but you have nothing to worry about , I have been stopped they are polite there is nothing to worry about just get on with your life , maybe wifey needs to have a chat with her mom.

BTW I and my wife are living in different places. She has not been living in Poland for a long time. Thats why maybe Straz controlled me. Should I inform them or something?

Municipal police deal with such trifles as littering or snowy pavement or illegal parking.
Border guard are much more dangerous.
