I've noticed that people have their own terms when referring to the police. I did a search for slang terms and found 2 websites here and here that list various slang. I didn't check to see how many were the same or different on each list.
I usually just say Cops, or the Police, but affectionately use Po Po for various reasons, stemming from my college days and certain roommates. I'll just say, thank you Jay-Z and other club music.
What do you refer to the police as? Any that are not on the list? I haven't heard of at least half of these. I thought it was an interesting read though. I liked "whoop-whoop". It said that it was used in the American south in reference to the siren.
I've added a new poll at the top right of the blog asking, "Are you offended by the term "pig"? Yes, no, or are you indifferent.
