How do you call police people? :D

DreamWolf DreamWolf
Just wondering now, some expressions can be heard a lot, others very rarely... Like the very correct "public servant" expression, representing the humbleness of a samurai, which of course so many of the corrupt police folks don't have... Respect to the exceptions...

GONE! GONE!
Umm none of the above polite and respectful options when they aren't around. Sorry nice cops, I know you do your jobs well but the ones around my area need to step up!

In general conversation - cops. If I'm talking to them, it'll be officer or sir or ma'am.

Cops - when I mention them in conversations with my husband or friends; Officers - when I talk about them in front of my son (got to show some respect).

Police. I had heard that "cop" is derogatory. While I don't know if it's true, I like to treat people with respect, even though they or may not respond accordingly.

I actually say police officers, so I guess it's a mix.

We use the more average terms (cops, 5-0, etc), and for the most part they're interchangable. When joking around, (though not in front of kids) we might say something along the lines of "anyone else smell bacon?"
