It is a Japanese slang word for a police detective.
Are there such slang words in English?
Hello, cop is also used as a slang word for the police in the UK. There are also strange words such as 'the old bill', or simply 'the bill', 'coppers', 'bobbies' and several rude ones that I shan't list!
Oh, so many! Thank you very much. If you don't mind, I'd be very happy if you could send me all those other terms.

'Pig' and 'filth' are used rudely. We also have 'rozzer' and 'plod' in BrE.
Other terms for the police include 'plod', (From Police Constable 'Plod' in an old U.K. childrens T.V. show) 'the fuzz', 'the boys in blue'.
