The article presents the results of a questionnaire-based survey conducted by the author. The respondents were elite detectives from the Czech Republic’s anti-corruption squad. The primary aim of the survey was to determine the function of the profession-specific language used by officers from this squad. The secondary aim was to either confirm or reject the hypothesis that the cryptic function of language plays an important role in these officers’ communication. The research found that the officers did not in fact use specific lexical items primarily in an attempt to conceal the meaning of their communication, rather, far more important factors were the principle of linguistic economy and the respondents’ desire to express their professional identity as members of the police force.
