Law enforcement slang for anyone who is an asshole. This term would be used within civilians' earshot so they wouldn't know swearing was going down. In the phonetic alphabet used by police, "Adam" stands for "A" while "Henry" stands for "H". So an "Adam Henry" is the same as "AH" or "asshole."
Tell the Sergeant we have an Adam Henry here who wants to make a complaint.
