Police, like doctors, teachers, and fire fighters, are public servants. Their job is to enforce the law, keep the peace, maintain public safety, and investigate crimes.

Police officers are easily recognized by their distinct uniform. They may also carry a badge, weapons, handcuffs, and drive a police car. Some work with police dogs known as K9 unites.

Law enforcement officers are often depicted in popular culture. Countless movies and television shows have centered around the life and work of real and fictional police officers.

In animation, familiar police-themed characters include Chase, the top dog in Paw Patrol, and Sheriff Woody from the Disney film Toy Story and its sequels.
