1) Slightly-fancier term
for Policeman.

2) Politically-correct sounding way to
say Cop.

3) Alternate term for, but not nearly
as pretentious as the far more
officious-sounding Peace-Officer or
Law-Enforcement Officer.

Can also be used to denote certain Federal-Agents, Fish & Wildlife Officers, Park-Rangers, Border-Patrol, and other such sworn & commissioned professionals who work in important fields of law-enforcement, but who are not traditional street-cops.

Also used by those Officers who do not want to thought of, or referred to, as Policemen or Cops.
"Calling a cop a Police Officer is more polite; But when other cops do it it's a like a calling a garbage-man a Sanitation-Worker or a calling a store-clerk a Sales-Associate."

A policeman or policewoman; one who works for the police force. They have the responsibility of keeping the public peace. This is done by patrolling their beat and investigating possible crimes. Police Officer's are the one's who often respond to calls for help when you dial 911 by coming out to the location. Most police officers are very helpful and friendly, unless of course you lead them on a high speed car chase or something to that effect.
Police officers often put their life on the line to protect people but do not often get the thanks they deserve.

Bottom feeders that don't know how to make money. They harass hard working people to skim their paychecks to line their own pockets. Sit on their lazy asses all day, but their inflated egos lead them to believe they're doing something honorable, when they are single handedly ruining economies, destroying families, and stepping on the success of anyone who doesn't fit into their box. Cops are loser parasites, there are too many of them, and I don't appreciate having to pay taxes to support the salaries of hoards of greedy losers who do nothing for our country but make it worse.

A son, daughter, wife, mother, father, husband, brother, friend. An ordinary person, just like you...Except his or her passion was to keep the community safe. They often are never thanked until they are needed.

Keep in mind, cops are the ones who take those drunk drivers off the streets, so your happy little self can make it home safely tonight.

Most people who hate cops, will find themselves in a detrimental situation, in which a cop would be needed--then they'll be thankful. Until that time, they'll continue to be ignorant.

They ARE matter what the world says.
person: I hate police officers they are pigs!!
smarter person: What if someone is trying to kill you one day? Who are you going to call?
person: gang buddies?!?!?
smarter person: ....yeah, they'll DEFINITELY come save you. *sarcasm*

Average citizens, whom act like their job warrants being an asshole. Those who will pull over a person for holding a phone, but will drive around all day staring at a laptop installed in their car. They pretend to be friendly, or will be disrespectful when they find out your not "el jefe" possessing quantity narcotics to bring home to mommy/daddy chief for a pat on their butt. They enable their sirens/lights to pass others, because they are above the law and can speed to take a shit or get home in time to jerk off. Police officers are also morons who screw up something as simple as a drug bust, by wasting tax dollars by arresting drug users instead of busting the dealers, due to the courage required to enter an area that has high traffic of crime. They also believe their comradery is above all else and that their job involves the ultimate heterosexual friendship, while maintaining that friendship to make citizens driving above or (can not stress this enough on personal experience) BELOW 10 MPH of the speed limit, a living hell; all while demoralizing their fellow humans by acting they are better than everyone. Anyone saying that you will call on those people you despise for help, are also known as cop-suckers. (Please refer to seperate definition of term). The day police treat everyone equal, will be the day when this world will be a better place. Please note, date most likely correlated with the day hell freezes over/farmers call in to state their livestock can fly.
This police officer pretended to be my friend to try and manipulate me into forfeiting my rights so that he can freely search my property, only to find no contraband.

While expressing my rights to the 4th amendment, a police officer became irrate and decided to extend his reach of the law by using my, and other's tax dollars to obtain an unnecessary warrant. This ultimately led me to laugh when seeing the police officer's dissapointment when he/she could not arrest me for anything as a result.

6 occupation for those who need to compensate for their small dick size
2. one who will never get laid
I was a fuckin faggot in high school who was bullied around by pretty much everyone. so to make up for it, and for the fact that my dick is the size of a red fire ant, I'll become a police officer.

Maybe if Jon didn't have that gay looking hair, always worry about how people drove, and wasn't a fuckin asshole he would get laid once in a while. but he's too much of a police officer.
